A Gorgeous Edge-Grain Walnut Butcher Block Countertop Can Totally Transform a Kitchen
American Black Walnut, treasured for its varied, rich colors, is the most valuable North American hardwood. The typical walnut edge-grain butcher block exhibits a vivid array of light colors – off-white, faint yellows and creams - as well as medium to dark browns. This fascinating natural mix of colors makes walnut the go-to hardwood for high-end luxury homes.
Butcher blocks are assembled in a number of different construction styles. By far, edge-grain butcher blocks are the most popular. They are constructed by bonding together long strips of walnut wood of equal length. Each strip runs the full length of the countertop, so its only seams run parallel to one another. This provides a clean and consistent look, which most homeowners prefer.

Boos Walnut Kitchen Counters Come with Either a Natural Oil or Varnique Finish
The key question you must answer in order to decide on a finish is whether you intend to cut directly upon it. Whereas you can cut upon a countertop finished with natural oil, you should not cut upon a Boos walnut countertop coated with Varnique. Varnique provides a protective high-sheen shield, but Varnique can be compromised by a sharp knife blade slicing into it.
