Butcher block counter tops are natural, beautiful, practical, renewable, economical, and contrary to popular belief, one of the safest, most sanitary kitchen work surfaces available today. To maintain its beauty, this surface requires careful cleaning and frequent oiling. It is vulnerable to dents, scratches and water damage. One of the advantages of hardwood butcher block counter tops is the fact that you can cut on it without permanently damaging the surface or dulling your knife edge. In most instances sanding and the application of mineral oil can remove knife marks left on the surface.

Information You Should Know About Butcher Block
Thickness - butcher block may be fabricated in different thicknesses. The most common and standard thickness is 1-1/2", however it can be up to 4". Different thicknesses give many design opportunities for your counter top solution, but remember that standard options are always the most affordable.
Edge Detail - there are many edge details available for each thickness. Eased edge is standard and included in the base price.
Finish - butcher block comes unfinished. Our base price includes oil finish to provide water and stain protection. A furniture quality finish is available, but it is not as practical as oil protection.
Grain - edge grain and end grain are the two most known options of gluing butcher block. We use only solid wood 1" to 2" wide. Make sure you are getting quality product, as many companies are offering counter tops from "finger-joint" material.
