- 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.
- In countertops 96” and longer, some wood rails might not span the full length of the countertop. In such cases, some wood pieces might be finger-jointed together and metal fasteners might be used to add structural strength.
- Sometimes, radiating silver streaks called "medullary rays" appear in oak countertops where the tree's growth rings are roughly perpendicular to the face of the board. These are naturally occurring and not defects.
Oak Butcher Block Countertops – Edge Grain Style, 1-1/2” Thick
Culinary professionals value butcher block for its durability and versatility. Home cooks too enjoy the benefits of commercial-quality butcher block when it’s handcrafted into countertops that are as hard-working as they are great-looking.
Appalachian Red Oak is a pale, reddish brown, coarse-grained wood. In edge-grain style boards, individual rails of wood are bonded together side by side. The result is parallel seams that run the entire length of the board. In combination, red oak and edge-grain construction will bring a clean and vibrant richness to your kitchen.
John Boos Oak Countertops Are Both Strong And Gorgeous
The name John Boos is nearly synonymous with the term butcher block, both of which date back to the 1800s. To this day the company continues to manufacture kitchen furniture and accessories in Effingham, Illinois. They use only fine hardwoods harvested from well-managed North American forests and are as committed to sustainability as to the highest standards of quality and workmanship.
These Oak Countertops Come In a Wide Range of Standard Sizes
John Boos & Co. offers 1.5-inch-thick oak butcher block counter tops in standard-size widths from 25” to 42” and lengths up to 145”. Our standard 48”-wide board is 1.75” thick. If you need a custom size, get an instant online price quote in four easy steps.
Choose An Oil or Varnique Finish For Your Blended Oak Countertops
A Natural Oil finish is appropriate if you intend to cut directly on your countertops. Although cleanup is easy using a soft, damp cloth, you will need to maintain the wood's finish by reapplying oil about once a month. So consider stocking up on Boos Mystery Oil and/or Boos Board Cream. Your other finish option is a semi-gloss varnish called Varnique, also made by Boos. You’ll love the lustrous look Varnique provides, as well as how easy it is to maintain. Importantly though, you should never cut directly on a block coated with Varnique. Use a cutting board instead.
For a Professional Look, Finish Off Your Oak Butcher Block Countertop with A Backsplash
Showcase your new oak countertop by adding an oak backsplash. Boos oak backsplashes are 3/4 “ thick and 4” high. Their top edges are slightly eased (lightly sanded). Your backsplash will come with the same finish as the finish you specify for your countertop.
