Five Butcher Blocks for Aramark | Details
Five butcher block tops were custom crafted in end grain construction style out of Walnut with Sapwood. The tops were designed by Boyertown Planing Mill Co. Each butcher block countertop is three inches thick and features a 1/8 inch Roundover edge profile. Grothouse Original Oil™ Finish was applied to each top before installation. This finish does require ongoing maintenance, however it is food safe and is the preferred finish for food preparation.
The butcher block tops were shipped in pallets, each weighing approximately 1600 lbs. Each butcher block top had to be delivered by crane to each of the five floors.
