The Largest Model of Boos Gathering Blocks Makes a Magnificent Kitchen Island Table
This alluring, island-size version includes a maple butcher block top that’s 4 feet long and 2 feet wide (or deep). So that’s 8 additional square feet of work and/or countertop display space packed in a spectacular piece of furniture that will breathe new life into your kitchen or dining room. You’ll also gain storage space thanks to a slatted, lower shelf and 3 sliding wicker baskets that double as drawers for storing kitchen tools and utensils.
Its Versatile, Hard Rock Maple Butcher Block Top Is Perfect for Any Food Preparation Task
Four inches thick and made of quality North American Hard Rock Maple, this gorgeous table top will serve you well, regardless of whether the task at hand is carving meat, chopping vegetables, slicing fruit or baking. Butcher block is plenty sturdy of course, but so smooth it’s a perfect surface on which to knead and roll dough for pies, pastries and tarts, for example.
End-Grain Style Butcher’s Board Is as Visually Dazzling as It Is Sturdy and Resilient
End-grain boards result from cutting wood across its growth rings, so such surfaces reveal intricate grain patterns. Picture dozens of small (smaller than 2” x 2”) end-grain squares arranged in a grid pattern and you’ll understand why these checkerboard designs are so mesmerizing. Plus, now you’ll understand why such work surfaces are resilient. They are made up of wood fibers that do not thwart sharp blades; instead, they yield to them. This benefits the knives, as well as the cutting surface.
Once Assembled, the Entire Maple Block Is Bathed in Boos Board Cream
The cream is an all-natural blend that soaks into the wood’s grain. Beeswax is included in the cream. It seals moisture into the board and leaves its surface silky to the touch. Think of the waxy finish it leaves as a moisture barrier. Boos strongly recommends regular re-oiling of its butcher blocks and offers both oil and cream products for this purpose. We urge you to add one or both to your shopping cart.
The Gathering Block III’s Maple Base Is a Work of Art unto Itself
You’ll love its delicately notched and pinstripe-painted legs. Adding to its appeal is the fact that its base has been distressed. Consequently, no matter what finish you choose for the table’s base, some of the wood’s grain will show through, enhancing its natural beauty. This gives the overall unit an aged look you typically associate with antiques.
