Note: Cutting into a Boos countertop (e.g., trimming its length or width or executing miter cuts or cutouts) will void the manufacturer's warranty. We will be happy to provide a price quote for a factory-warranted cut or cutout if you contact us. Note: In countertops 96” and longer, some wood rails might not span the full length of the countertop. In such cases, some wood pieces might be finger-jointed together and metal fasteners might be used to add structural strength.
For a Classic Look, Choose An Edge-Grain Maple Butcher Block Counter or Island Top
Naturally beautiful and durable maple butcher block countertops perform double duty, serving as your kitchen’s primary work surface as well as a stylish focal point. They add beauty and warmth and are sure to make the time you spend in the kitchen more enjoyable.
These countertops are edge-grain style, meaning that all wood strips run the entire length of the countertop. This provides an especially clean look that shows off the virtues of maple: soft, neutral tones; fine, tight grain patterns; and a consistent, almost uniform appearance.
Hard Rock Maple Countertops and Island Tops Are Built To Last
John Boos & Co. of Effingham, IL makes these standard-size maple countertops. They’ve been manufacturing butcher block for more than a century and use only the finest North American hardwood. Rock maple is a stiff, dense wood, so it’s strong enough to withstand tough everyday tasks like chopping vegetables. But lightly sanded, it provides a smooth, easy-to-use work surface that’s perfect for rolling pastry dough, for instance.
Boos Maple Edge-Grain Counter/Island Tops Are Available In A Wide Range of Standard Sizes
Boos edge-grain maple butcher block counter tops come in thicknesses of 1.5”, 1.75”, 2.25” and 3”. Standard-size lengths range from 12” to 145”, and widths range from 25” to 48”. Given the variety of sizes available, you’re likely to find a standard-size counter that suits your needs. If not, don’t worry. We also offer custom-size countertops.

Choose a Natural Oil or Varnique Finish
Most people choose a Natural Oil finish and add Boos Mystery Oil or Boos Board Cream with Beeswax to their orders. Reapplying oil or cream monthly will sustain the luster and longevity of butcher block. Most scars and stains can be resolved by lightly sanding the affected area with a fine grit sand paper, then applying oil or cream. If instead, you seek a fine-furniture look for your counters and do not intend to cut directly upon them, consider a Varnique semi-gloss varnish-like finish. It’s virtually maintenance free!
Add a Butcher Block Backsplash As A Finishing Touch
Backsplashes help minimize messes and the need for clean-up. Plus, they cap off the professional look and feel of authentic butcher block. Also made of hard rock maple, our backsplashes are 4” high and ¾“ thick.
