- Natural cherry wood is lighter in appearance than cherry-stained wood. Also, its color can vary with the ratio of red heartwood (core of the tree) to light pink sapwood (between the core and the bark) in the board. Cherry wood is light in color when new, but darkens over time.
- Cutting into a Boos countertop (e.g., trimming its length or width or executing miter cuts or cutouts) will void the manufacturer's warranty. If you contact us, we will happily provide a price quote for a factory-warranted cut. Blended tops are not suitable for cutouts.
- If you plan to cut into your countertop nevertheless, be advised that metal fasteners are used in blended-grain countertops to add structural strength.
Blended Cherry Butcher Block Countertops Will Leave You and Your Kitchen Feeling In The Pink!
A remodel is a great way to add vibrancy to a long-in-the-tooth kitchen. A key focus of nearly all remodels is a countertop redo, and butcher block is the only countertop material that remains as popular today as it was decades ago – testimony to its timeless beauty and appeal. And of all the North American hardwoods most often converted into kitchen countertops, none is as warm and inviting as luscious cherry, with its pink and reddish tinge.
For an even more distinct, cherry swirl look, choose an American Cherry countertop in blended-grain style. Blended-grain boards magnify a wood’s color and grain variation because they’re constructed using many short strips of wood finger-jointed together, rather than long strips that run the full length of the countertop, as with edge-grain boards. That’s why they’re sometimes called jointed edge grain boards.

Choose An Oil or Varnique Finish For Your Blended Cherry Counters
A Natural Oil finish is appropriate if you will be cutting on your counters. Clean up is simple with a soft, damp cloth. You will, however, need to maintain this protective finish by reapplying oil from time to time. It replenishes moisture and locks it in. So stock up on Boos Mystery Oil or Boos Board Cream. Your other finish option is a semi-gloss varnish called Varnique that’s also made by Boos. You’ll love the lustrous look it provides and the facts that it requires little maintenance and stands up to most household cleaners, but note that you should not cut directly on a block coated with Varnique. Use a cutting board instead.
