John Boos butcher block
John Boos & Co. began with their butcher block product, and it wasn’t even intentional. Some 125 years ago, Conrad Boos, John’s father, was working as a blacksmith. He was in need of a product that could handle the blows of his hammer and anvil while he worked. No such product existed, so he wandered into the nearby woods and harvest wood from a sycamore tree. He crafted the wood into a butcher block, standing on three legs. It did the trick. Conrad was able to work seamlessly. The local butcher had seen Conrad’s butcher block and coveted one for himself. Conrad’s son, John, crafted him a similar product to use for his meat market, and the rest was history.
John Boos stainless steel
They started with butcher block, but that certainly doesn’t make them any less of an expert when it comes to steel. John Boos quickly learned the advantages of stainless steel and began manufacturing it along with their butcher block products. In fact, many of John Boos products are an amalgam of their two works of art; butcher block and stainless steel.
John Boos kitchen cart
One such product that combines both butcher block and stainless steel are John Boos kitchen carts. Why do you have a need for a kitchen cart? For starters, it is mobile. It can live separately from your current countertops. Butcher block or steel countertops are great, but if you aren’t in the market for remodeling or are trying to save some money, a kitchen cart might be the right choice. John Boos kitchen carts combine a sturdy and durable butcher block top, with stainless steel legs, wheels, and drawers. Much like Conrad’s first butcher block, but updated to be modern and able to withstand any of your needs. John Boos kitchen carts are great for food preparation, including cutting, dicing, slicing, and cleaning. The surface is made of butcher block so it is safe to prepare food on and still have the visual appeal. The stainless steel legs will add a sleekness to any style home and match any design style you might have. The kitchen cart could even be used in other rooms, maybe as a table to serve appetizers or a mini bar.
