Note: Cutting into a countertop (e.g., trimming its length or width or executing miter cuts or cutouts) will void the manufacturer's warranty. If you contact us, we will happily provide a price quote for a factory-warranted cut or cutout. If you intend to cut into your countertop anyway, be advised that metal fasteners are used in blended-grain countertops to add structural strength.
A Blended Walnut Countertop Will Fill Your Kitchen with Kaleidoscopic Color
Walnut butcher block constructed in blended-grain style accentuates the exceptionally varied coloration of American Black Walnut wood. In it you will find a tantalizing mix of vanilla, cream, caramel and dark chocolate.
If that’s not enough to make you salivate, consider that blended butcher blocks are constructed by using multiple wood strips to span the length of each interior “row” of the block. As a result, all those colors will appear in an even more random pattern than Nature can deliver. For example, it’s quite possible that a strip of wood that’s mostly blond could be finger-jointed to another that’s a deep, dark brown, providing a striking contrast. Now, imagine that visual effect repeated dozens of times and you’ll understand why a blended walnut butcher block is sometimes compared to a quilt, which in a similar fashion integrates many distinctive individual pieces to create a whole that's greater than the sum of its parts.
These Blended Walnut Countertops - AKA Finger-jointed Edge-Grain Butcher Blocks - Are Made by John Boos & Co.
Boos & Co. made their very first butcher block in the late 1800s in Central Illinois, not far from where the company is still located to this day. The walnut blended-grain counters Boos manufactures are available in a range of standard sizes, all 1-1/2 inches thick. Standard widths range from 25" to 42" and standard lengths range from 36" up to 145".

Boos Walnut Blended Kitchen Counters Come in Two Very Different Finishes: Natural Oil and Varnique
If you will cut directly upon the countertop, then choose a natural oil finish. On the other hand, if you will not be cutting upon it and if you prefer a hard-shell, protective finish, you should consider Varnique - Boos & Co.’s varnish-like finish that requires little maintenance. Just know that you should not cut directly upon a countertop finished with Varnique. Use a cutting board instead.
