The Boos Metro Station Features a Square, End-Grain Butcher Block on a Modern-Looking Stainless Steel Stand
The Metropolitan Station by John Boos employs a sleek and simple design that works with most kitchen décors and makes it multi-functional. Its 4” thick, 24-inch-square butcher block top makes it one of the most substantial kitchen tables you’ll ever come across. But its smooth, glossy surface makes it perfect for simple food prep like sandwich making. Finally, it’s such a handsome piece of quality kitchen furniture that you’ll want to show it off by using it as a serving block for gourmet cheeses, fresh fruit or freshly baked cookies. Or use it as a buffet table for presenting side dishes during your family’s dinner.
Its End-Grain Style Top Will Mesmerize
End-grain butcher blocks look a lot like checkerboards, but without the stark contrast in colors. They do, however, display considerable variation from square to square. That’s because each square is the cut end of a short length of wood – 4 inches long, in this case. As with snowflakes, no two cut ends of wood look exactly alike.
This Maple Butcher Block is Sealed with a Varnique Finish
Varnique is a Boos brand of furniture finish, similar to a semi-gloss varnish. It seals and protects wood, gives the piece a fine-furniture look and requires no maintenance. Most household cleaners can’t harm it, and you can clean it using mild soap and water and a soft towel. However, it’s important to note that you should not cut upon a surface finished with Varnique. Instead, place a cutting board on the Metro’s surface and cut on the board, not on the Metro.
It Takes a Welded, Stainless Steel Stand To Support the Metro Station’s Massive Block Top
Specifically, it takes 16 gauge brushed stainless steel that's melded into 1-1/2” square tubing. That tubing is formed into a sturdy frame apron and legs. Like the butcher block mounted on it, this steel frame is built to last.
