Modern Rustic Kitchen Decor at Butcher Block Co.

Rustic meets modern at Butcher Block Co.! Modern rustic decor is very popular right now. It is often exemplified by a mix of natural materials including stone, wood and metal. In a kitchen this could be a combination of granite countertops, a wood farmhouse table or island top, and stainless steel appliances. See a variety of ways the charm of natural wood can make your modern rustic kitchen warm and welcoming.

Modern Rustic Hand Scraped Plank

You can make your own farmhouse table, island top or countertop by ordering a Butcher Block Co. brand edge grain or plank-style wood top. They are available in 15 different species of wood and a handful of finish options. Choose a hand scraped finish if you are looking for a more authentic distressed top.

Modern Rustic Table

Country style is definitely going urban! The addition of a country-style table in your kitchen is a simple way to go modern rustic. Consider a country work table with a painted base, available in dozens of sizes, colors and features. John Boos recently introduced their Rustic Country Table which features an Ash wood butcher block top. It incorporates numerous attributes that collectively convey a classic rustic character. Most striking is the tables top’s embossed texture that enhances its authentic and aged appearance. With a caramel colored stain, this table serves as a great accent piece in a modern rustic kitchen.

The kitchen is often the the family gathering place and a butcher block island is the entertainment center of the kitchen.  Highly functional, kitchen islands are great for prepping food as well as serving appetizers and eating meals. Butcher block island tops are available in custom sizes in end grain, edge grain, blended grain and plank-style wood. Select from 15 different wood species.

Modern Rustic Apron Sink

Farmhouse sinks are all the rage, and John Boos butcher block countertops can be custom ordered from Butcher Block Co. with sink cutouts specifically for your apron sink, or for any top-mount or under-mount sink, for that matter. All we need is the model number of the sink and a drawing with countertop measurements.

Modern Rustic Edge Cutting Board

Elements like a rustic edge cutting board can add a vintage accent to your modern kitchen. The Boos 1887 Collection of cutting boards hearkens back to the company’s inaugural year. The very first Boos Blocks were cut from solid blocks of Sycamore wood. Like those originals, these boards feature rustic edges created by Nature – each one slightly different from the next. Available in small, medium and large sizes, in maple, walnut or cherry wood.

If you’re going for a modern rustic look, or just want to add a little rustic charm, Butcher Block Co. has what you need! We hope you’ve been inspired to bring some natural elements into your home.

John Boos Launches Rustic Edge Classic Country Work Table

John Boos Launches Rustic Edge Classic Country Work Table

The Illinois-based firm recently announced its all-new Rustic Edge Classic Country Work Table made of Ash wood as part of its “1887 Collection.” More than 130 years after Boos & Co. produced the very first “Boos Block,” the company continues its long tradition of beautiful, functional butcher block wood furniture.

According to Ted Gravenhorst, Jr., Boos & Co.’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, “The Rustic Edge is distinctly different from other Boos Country Work Tables in two respects. It’s made of Ash wood, rather than Maple, Walnut or Oak.” These are the three North American hardwood species Boos uses in making its “C Classic” Maple Country Work Table, its Elliptical Maple Butcher Block Table, its “OC” Oak Country Table and its Walnut Country Work Table. Ash is a pale-yellow, medium-strength wood with light to medium browns and straight and regular grain.

“The other way in which the Ash Rustic Edge stands out is the table’s top features an embossed texture that enhances its authentic and aged appearance.” It is finished off with a coat of Varnique – Boos’ proprietary varnish-like formula that protects wood against nicks and scratches and leaves a semi-glossy look typically associated with fine furniture. “Another advantage of Varnique is that it requires little maintenance and it’s easy to clean with warm, soapy water and a sponge or cloth,” Gravenhorst summed up.

The table’s ash top will be edge-grain butcher block. All the wood strips or rails used in making edge-grain blocks measure roughly 1-3/4 inches by 1-3/4 inches and run parallel to one another. As a result, the surface of the table shows what’s referred to as the tree’s “edge grain.” It will look much like the edge of an Ashwood plank exiting a lumber mill.

Overall, the Rustic Edge table is 60 inches long, 30 inches deep and 35 inches tall. The entire table, including its Hard Maple apron, two slatted shelves and tapered legs, is finished with a caramel-color stain.
