Note: Cutting into a 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 or cutout. If you intend to cut into your countertop anyway, be advised that metal fasteners are used in blended-grain countertops to add structural strength.
Blended Walnut Butcher Block Countertops Bring Elegance and Intrigue to Kitchens
If you find appealing the dark and luscious look of American Black Walnut, consider new or replacement butcher block countertops for your kitchen constructed in blended-grain style. Unlike edge-grain style blocks, which utilize wood rails as long as the length of the overall block, blended-grain butcher blocks use wood rails of varying length, finger-jointed together to span the countertop. For aesthetics, rails are rotated 90 degrees to hide the actual finger joints, leaving on the block’s surface only faint borders between the wooden strips. Because they incorporate more wood strips of different lengths, blended-style butcher blocks deliver an intriguing patchwork quilt-like look.
You Can’t Beat These Walnut Countertops For Beauty And Functionality
Walnut is renowned for its wavy grain, which can be fine, curly waves or knotted and burled. Walnut butcher blocks typically display an array of colors, from creamy white to warm browns and even a purplish-black. Take advantage of the ample work space wood countertops provide for food preparation tasks. Pound, carve, chop, slice and dice away on them. They’re made by food service industry leader, John Boos & Co., whose rich history dates back to the 1880s. Boos makes a wide array of kitchen furniture featuring butcher block, including kitchen islands, carts and butcher block tables.
Boos Makes Countertops In A Variety Of Dimensions, Using Different Woods And Grain Styles
Besides walnut, Boos makes maple, cherry and oak countertops in three different grain styles. All blended grain, or “jointed edge grain” boards come in a thickness of 1.5 inches only. Seven different widths are offered, from 25” to 42”, and lengths top out at 148”.

Choose A Finish For Your Jointed Edge Grain Walnut Counters
These counters are finished with a coating of food-safe natural oil which you’ll have to replenish every few weeks. So be sure to ad Mystery Oil or Board Cream to your cart. If you would prefer a maintenance-free option and the look of fine furniture, then opt for a Varnique finish, but note that the semi-gloss varnish is not to be directly cut open. A simple solution would be for you to place a cutting board on the counter.
