Note: Cutting into a countertop (e.g., trimming its length or width or executing miter cuts or cutouts) will void the manufacturer's warranty. We will be happy to provide a price quote for a factory-warranted cut or cutout if you contact us.

In such cases, some wood pieces might be finger-jointed together and metal fasteners might be used to add structural strength.
Walnut Butcher Block Countertops – For The Rich Look Of Luxury
American Black Walnut is a stunningly beautiful hardwood, distinguished by its natural variation in color from light to very dark brown. Walnut can just as easily complement a dark kitchen as it can accent a neutral or light-colored kitchen. No wonder it continues to gain ground on ever-popular rock maple.
Walnut countertops come in different grain styles. Edge-grain counters like these are constructed by bonding together, side by side, walnut rails of equal length. Extreme heat and pressure are applied to create a solid, sturdy structure that, if well maintained, can last decades.
Walnut Countertops Are As Functional and Versatile As They Are Beautiful
Butcher block is especially ideal for the gourmet’s kitchen. It provides a smooth but sturdy work surface for everything from rolling and kneading dough to slicing fruit and vegetables; plus counter space you’ll find invaluable for preparing meals and serving hors d’oeuvres and desserts, and even main courses.
Last but not least, wood counters are a breeze to clean up. If you opt for a natural oil finish, a soft, damp dish towel will do the trick. However you will need to reapply butcher block oil or cream monthly, so be sure to add Boos Mystery Oil or Board Cream to your order. If you don’t plan to place and cut food directly on your countertop, you can consider a Varnique semi-gloss varnish finish instead. Not only will Varnique give your counters a fine-furniture look and require little maintenance, it can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water.
John Boos Makes These Black Walnut Counters In Custom As Well As Standard Sizes
Dating back to the nineteenth century, John Boos & Co. has more experience with butcher blocks than any other company. They make these walnut edge-grain countertops in 1.5”, 1.75”, 2.25” and 3” thicknesses. Standard size counters can be up to 145” in length and 48” in width.
Standard edging calls for the top of the countertop edge to be lightly sanded for very faint rounding. Custom edge treatments are also available. Using Butcher Block Co.’s instant online price quoter, you can specify custom edging for a standard-size counter, or specify custom dimensions, and instantly receive a price quote for your custom countertop.
A Walnut Butcher Block Backsplash Will Finish Off Your Statement With An Exclamation Point!
Cap off your new countertop with a handsome, solid-walnut backsplash made in face-grain style. It rises 4 inches above the counter itself. Not only will it frame your new kitchen addition like a work of art, it will help prevent messes and shorten clean-up time.
