A Gorgeous Edge-Grain Walnut Butcher Block Countertop Can Transform a Kitchen
American Black Walnut, treasured for its varied, rich colors, is the most valuable North American hardwood. The typical walnut edge-grain butcher block exhibits a vivid array of light colors – off-white, faint yellows and cream - as well as medium to dark browns. This fascinating mix of colors makes walnut the go-to hardwood for luxury homes.
Butcher blocks are assembled in a number of different construction styles; by far, edge-grain blocks are the most popular. They are constructed by bonding together strips of walnut wood of equal length. Each strip runs the full length of the countertop, so its only seams will run parallel to one another. This provides a clean and consistent look, which most homeowners prefer.
John Boos Walnut Countertops Come in a Wide Range of Thicknesses and Sizes
Boos & Co. makes walnut edge-grain counters in many industry-standard sizes. So it’s likely you’ll find one that will fit your new-construction or kitchen remodel project. Standard widths range from 25 inches up to 48 inches. Within each width-class you’ll find an array of lengths, all the way up to 145 inches. Plus, you can choose from four different thickness options: 1.5, 1.75, 2.25 and 3 inches. If Boos doesn’t make a standard-size walnut countertop in edge-grain style that suits your need, simply obtain an instant online price quote for the edge-grain walnut counter top of your choosing.
Boos Walnut Kitchen Counters Come with Either a Natural Oil Finish or a Varnique Finish
The key question you must answer in order to decide on a finish for your butcher’s block walnut countertop is whether you intend to cut directly upon it. Whereas you can cut upon a countertop finished with natural oil, you should not cut upon a Boos countertop coated with Varnique. Varnique provides a protective high-sheen shield, but that finish can be compromised by a sharp knife blade slicing into it.
A Walnut Butcher Block Backsplash Will Make a Splendid Finishing Touch
Not only do backsplashes make kitchen clean-up easier, they add a beautiful final touch that will make your butcher block countertop truly stand out.
All Boos walnut backsplashes are 4” high and ¾“ thick. Their top edges are slightly eased (lightly sanded). If you order a backsplash, it will be finished to match the finish of your countertop.
