The Boos Mediterranean Table Features a Gorgeous End-Grain Cherry Butcher Block Top
American Cherry presents a stunning blend of colors, including pale yellow and red tones that range from light pink to reddish brown. Fresh cherry wood is somewhat light in appearance, but darkens over time. The Mediterranean's end-grain construction style only amplifies cherry's fascinating color scheme. End-grain butcher block is made by thermo-bonding together short wood rails (2-1/4" long in this case) standing on cut ends. The opposite ends of these wood pieces, which comprise the surface of the butcher block, reveal small cross sections of the growth rings of the source tree. The result is a checkerboard-like surface wherein no two rectangles look exactly alike. Each rectangle contributes its very own color signature and distinct slice of growth-ring arcs.
End-Grain Butcher Block Is Best for Food Prep, as Well as Show
End-grain-style blocks are certainly the most visually interesting and appealing, but they have another important advantage. Because their top is made up of cut ends of wood, they present a wood-fiber-rich work surface that is superior for cutting, slicing and even chopping, as wood fibers give way to sharp blades, rather than repelling them. An added benefit is that end-grain blocks are easier on knife and hatchet blades. They will not dull as quickly and will last longer.
The Table's Alabaster Base Houses a Drawer and Two Slatted Shelves
The Mediterranean's hardwood base and shelves are painted alabaster white, making for a pleasing contrast between the table's base and its marvelous end-grain cherry top. Store any variety of kitchen utensils, placemats or linens in the convenient drawer, and cookware or dinnerware on two sturdy slatted shelves.
We recommend you consider adding block oil and/or board cream to your order. Re-oiling your block monthly will keep it looking great and extend its life.
