What is a Hand Scraped Butcher Block Countertop?
A hand scraped butcher block countertop is exactly what you envision; it is fashioned by an artist and a scraper, creating a distressed wood look. The distressed wood look is one of the most popular styles in the market today, and it is ideal for any design you have in mind. A master woodcrafter awaits your special order before creating a butcher block countertop that complements your unique kitchen space. Hand scraping is a technique that maximizes the natural and rustic look of a beautiful piece of wood with only two tools, hands and a scraper. The master artisan uses a single-blade scraper and creates unique, individual butcher blocks. The butcher block countertop is made up of individual boards, which are 1 inch wide, that are glued together. The boards are uniformly laid out, side by side, constructing a long, elegant design that is beautifully precise. The butcher block is then carefully and slowly hand scraped. No two hand scraped butcher blocks are the same.
