- 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 good-looking as they are hard-working. 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 Wood Countertops – 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.
Choose either Natural Oil or a Varnique finish for your countertop. If the former, Boos will apply their proprietary, food-safe oil blend, making the board perfectly suitable for food preparation tasks, but requiring reapplication of Boos Mystery Oil or Boos Board Cream with Beeswax at regular intervals. The Varnique finish, on the other hand, is nearly maintenance free. Although this semi-gloss varnish provides a lustrous look, it should not be directly cut upon.
These Oak Countertops Come In Various Sizes
We offer 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 quore in four easy steps.
Finish Off Your Butcher Block Counters With An Oak Backsplash
