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.
