Black walnut is a stunning North American hardwood that produces truly distinct dining table tops. The color palette of walnut includes creamy whites and medium to very dark browns. So as you can imagine, rich-looking walnut tops are best suited for darker settings, such as those typically associated with fine dining establishments.
John Boos & Co. manufactures these table tops featuring gorgeous American Black Walnut in Effingham, Illinois. The company has been making butcher blocks since the 1880s and is recognized as the worldwide butcher block leader. The experience that Boos has gained is quite valuable, since there’s a lot more to making consistently high-quality butcher block than meets the eye. Wood has to be of the right character, aged and dried just right, and assembled into a sturdy unibody by applying the right amounts of adhesive, heat and compression.
Boos makes table tops in walnut and other hardwood varieties in shapes ranging from round to square and from ovals to octagons. They come in several different table top thicknesses, depending on size, and in dimensions as small as a 24-inch square, all the way up to an rounds and octagons 60 inches across. Plus, you can specify either dining or bar-height metal table supports.
The standard (default) edge is a Single ¼” Radius on the top portion of the edge ONLY. You have the option of upgrading to a Double ¼” Radius (i.e., on both the top and bottom of the edge).
We are providing the following information as a courtesy, should you wish to search for table bases available from other sources.
Before pandemic-related supply disruptions, Boos & Co. offered four different styles of black metal stands. Options included table supports with disc bases, cross bases or T supports, in “dining height” (28” to the top of the metal “spider” to which the wood attaches) or “bar height” (40-1/2” to the top of the spider). The following table shows previously available base options by table top size.
Black metal disc bases were available for tables 24 to 60 inches long. Black metal cross bases were available for tables 24 to 42 inches in length. Black metal “T” bases were suitable for tables 48 to 144” long. The table below provides details.
The illustrations below show disc base footprints relative to table tops. If you are contemplating purchasing a disc base for your table top, be certain you will be satisfied with how much floor space will be available for tucking chairs under the table.
