Dining Table Sets That Blend Wood and Steel with Superb Design
For more than a century John Boos & Co. has been a leader in designing and manufacturing fine wood furniture and cutting boards for residential and foodservice industry customers. Plus, their commercial division is a top supplier of stainless steel kitchen work tables and cabinets used in restaurants worldwide. With the launch of their innovative new Foundry Collection, the company once again turning heads.
Boos & Co. is now leveraging their design expertise and manufacturing prowess to bring to market a stunning wood dining table design in two modern industrial styles. These dining table sets (dining table with bench or dining stools) meld together two materials with very different properties and looks – timeless, natural hardwood butcher block and contoured, powder-coated steel. The end result is these stunning rustic modern dining table sets.
Inspired by the Farmhouse Table and the Trestle Table, Foundry Collection Tables Are in a Class of Their Own
Although they bring to mind classic farmhouse tables, these new steel and wood dining tables have way more flair, not to mention bases made of solid steel, unlike the farmhouse dining table. And while a Foundry Collection table somewhat resembles a trestle dining table, it uniquely features a long, horizontal bridge board (a “stringer”) that connects the table’s two steel supports, adding both beauty and stability. Both the dining table's top and the stringer are 1-1/2"-thick edge-grain butcher blocks finished with Boos Varnique - a varnish-like product that leaves a semi-gloss finish that's impervious to most household chemicals and virtually maintenance free. Simply use soapy water and a soft cloth to clean either surface.

Bistro Style Round
The legs of Bistro-Style round tables also bow inward slightly, providing the visual sensation that the top and base of the table both radiate outward from the very center of the table’s top.
Make Your Wood Dining Table Any of Four Popular Species
Northern Hard Rock Maple is Boos's top seller, preferred for its hardness, neutral colors and affordability.
American Black Walnut ranks number two, appreciated for its striking palatte of brownish tans and medium-to-dark browns.
American Cherry darkens over time, transitioning from pale pink to light-to-medium reddish-browns and yellow.
Appalachian Red Oak displays darker browns than does Maple, but lighter browns than those characteristic of Walnut.
