Description

There is nothing like an old-fashioned, butcher block island countertop for the warmth, color and feel of a solid hardwood surface. The island becomes the center of the kitchen, where everyone congregates while meals are being made. Or overhang one side, stash a few stools underneath, and it becomes a wonderful place to sip coffee while the kids eat breakfast.

Pacific Madrone (Madrona)

Madrone, a unique Northwestern hardwood with an incomparable warm mocha brown look, is prized for its ripples of rich burgundy, salmon, and cream colors throughout. As hard and smooth grained as Eastern Maple. Madrone grows in forest openings from British Columbia to Southern California. Ours is sourced from the Umpqua and Rogue Valleys, where it grows well in the rich soils.


Side Grain

Side grain is the construction style most commonly used for countertops because it’s strong, stable, and more affordable than the plank or end grain styles. It’s made by placing long boards on their sides and joining them so that their long, narrow, and harder "side" edges form the surface. We don't use leftover lumber, so no short "finger-jointed" pieces or thinner remnants.


Cut-To-Size, Unfinished

Our standard butcher block is unfinished, cut-to-size (4', 6', 8' or 10' lengths), and sanded to approximately 120 grit with square edges.
However, all unfinished tops can be quoted with fabrication, installation, and finish - just contact us for details!

HOW TO FINISH A WOODEN COUNTERTOP


Care and Maintenance of a Butcher Block

Some clients use their butcher blocks as a large cutting board, others treat them like fine furniture. In either case, simply wipe clean with a moist sponge after use. Avoid harsh detergents and puddles of standing water. That's it!

Letting the butcher block dry out because of a lack of oil is the top cause of problems with butcher block. Periodically oil the butcher block with your choice of food-grade plant or mineral oil. A good rule of thumb is once a week for the first month and then a minimum of monthly thereafter. The frequency of oiling will depend largely on the species of wood, how you use it and what finish was applied. Basically, if the wood appears dry, it's time to oil it.


Natural Oil

Natural Oil finished tops are food grade, you can cut right on them like a cutting board. Because wood is a natural, living material, it continually absorbs more oil, so regular re-oiling will be necessary to maintain its luster. Re-oiling is simple -- just spread oil evenly over the surface, allow it to soak in for about 5 minutes then wipe the excess off with a clean rag. It's that easy!
If light scratches occur, sand the surface gently with 220-grit sandpaper and reapply your food-safe oil.
