About Pricing

For lowest prices, choose a standard size countertop. Customization increases price.

Please note that Edge Grain countertops exceeding 97" in length will typically have 2 to 3 finger joints per strip (or rail) of wood. In other words, multiple pieces will be joined together end-to-end to create each strip that spans the length of the counter top

Other Custom Options

If you're looking for a size or configuration not covered here, such as a 45-degree miter cut or a sink or stove cut-out, please call us at 877-845-5597 for a custom price quote.

About Custom Edging

End-grain edges cannot be customized. The standard edge is 1/4" radius, top only.

Edge or Blended Grain – The standard is sanded, slightly eased, top only. We offer four custom options illustrated below (not available on every species-grain style combination.) Note: Bullnose edges are 3/4" radius, top and bottom, regardless of countertop thickness.

Radius Edge

Beveled Edge

Bullnose Edge

Roman Ogee Edge

Boos Block Logo

The "Boos Block" logo can be engraved on the edge of your countertop at no additional cost. If you select "Yes", it will appear on both long edges, approximately 2 inches in from the left edge on EDGE or BLENDED grain tops, and centered on END grain tops. If you would like to adjust placement of the logo, please enter specific instructions in the "Comments" box during Checkout.

NSF Seal

The NSF seal can be applied to the underside of your counter at no additional charge, provided you chose Natural Oil as your finish. Varnique finish does not satisfy NSF requirements.

Also note that if you need an NSF-compliant backsplash you should call for a price quote. NSF requires that risers be coved and attached at the factory.

(Make sure your length is in inches)

All backsplashes are solid wood and face-grain style; 4" high and 3/4" thick. Standard lengths are shown in the drop-down menu. You can cut a standard size backsplash to a custom length, or call us to arrange for a custom cut.
