Octagon-Shaped Butcher Block Dining Tables Are Essential to the Mix
Whether you select Maple, Cherry or Walnut butcher block tables for your dining establishment, you can’t go wrong. All of these North American hardwoods are gorgeous and resilient, but the common denominator – the octagonal shape – is what makes this variety of dinner table distinct. Not only is the octagon an interesting shape in and of itself, but let’s face it: there’s no better shape of table when the challenge is to comfortably accommodate a party of eight.
These Octagonal Dinner Tables Come in Various Sizes and Species of Wood
Choose your 8-sided table in any of five different sizes. The smallest is 42 inches across and 1-1/2 inches thick. The four remaining sizes – 48, 52, 54 and 60 inches across – are all 1-3/4 inches thick. With respect to wood species, you might opt for hard maple, not only due to its hardness, but because its color palette, consisting of light and medium tans and browns, is so soft and neutral it can complement nearly any restaurant décor. American cherry, another option for your wood octagons, is slightly bolder in appearance. A table top of this species starts out with a faint pinkish hue, but darkens over its first year or two. The most striking of the three octagonal choices is black walnut, easily recognizable by its blend of cream and medium to dark browns.
