Walnut Butcher Blocks Are New Additions to the John Boos Gathering Block Family

Boos & Co. has been making butcher blocks for quite a long time – since 1887, to be precise. Early on those Boos Blocks were made of Sycamore wood, but over time the company’s choice of materials has shifted to keep in step with the changing tastes of the millions of professional and amateur American chefs who swear by the Boos brand. Since American Black Walnut continues to gain popularity, the company saw fit to launch this new line of Walnut-top Gathering Blocks in 2016.

Walnut Gathering Blocks Come in Three Sizes

With three sizes to choose among, you’re sure to find one that fits your kitchen, pantry, breakfast nook, dining room or foyer. That’s right; while they make excellent kitchen work tables, they’re equally well suited to serve as buffet tables or as beautiful designer tables with rustic looks and an heirloom feel. All three sizes stand 36” tall – a comfortable height for a food-prep table. And all measure 24 inches in width (depth). So you guessed it, the three models differ only in length. The smallest version – the Walnut Gathering Block I - is nearly square - 25 inches long and 24 inches deep. It comes with a single wicker basket storage drawer. The middle size is 36 inches long and includes two basket drawers. The Walnut Gathering Block III is fitted with three wicker baskets and stretches 48 inches in length.

The End-Grain Butcher Blocks atop These Wondrous Tables Are 4 Inches Thick!

First, here’s a brief explanation of what distinguishes an end-grain style butcher block. In this particular block you’ll find 4-inch lengths of Black Walnut wood aligned vertically so that their fibrous ends form its top and bottom – the surface which butchers relish for their toughest meat carving and chopping jobs. An important advantage is that these highly fibrous surfaces absorb, rather than thwart, sharp blades, helping the chef’s cutlery stay sharper longer. Another advantage is that the block's top surface is simply gorgeous. It shows off the wide range of colors found in Black Walnut – including creams and chocolate browns – as well as walnut’s grain patterns, characterized by fairly distinct growth rings.

For an Even More Striking Gathering Block, Choose a Colored Table Base

You have 9 varied options for the block’s hardwood legs and slatted lower storage shelf. If you’d like to continue the top’s dark look into the table’s base, you might consider walnut stain or Caviar Black. If you’d like the eye to focus on the walnut butcher block itself, you could select an unobtrusive color, such as natural maple, Alabaster White or Basil Green. Take note that the table's base presents a distressed finish (i.e., some wood grain shows through), in order to reinforce the rustic feel of the overall piece.
