Prefinished End Grain Butcher Block Countertops



Kitchen upgrades are always at the top of homeowner's wish lists for good reason: they have an instant impact on the daily quality of life, with so much time spent in and near the kitchen; they improve not only the aesthetics of the room but also the functionality; and they are known to be a wise investment in both the value and the future marketability of a home.


The focal point of a kitchen, of course, will always be the countertop. It's where everyone gathers, to lean and chat, to prepare food together, or to admire the spread offered at a gathering.

At Country Mouldings, you can create your own unmatched piece for your personal space, one that will be truly one-of-a-kind. A hardwood countertop from Country Mouldings is built painstakingly - by experienced, meticulous woodworkers, in our Northeast Ohio facility, and using regionally sourced woods.

End grain butcher block countertops are quickly becoming a hot trend in kitchen upgrades, due to their functionality, durability, and natural beauty. Read on to learn more about this uniquely constructed surface.



End Grain Butcher Block Countertops
This style of countertop is created by gluing together carefully selected end pieces of hardwood boards, each about 1" wide and ranging in length from about 1-1/2" to 6", to form a single surface. The result is a countertop surface unmatched in usefulness, attractiveness, and strength.




Unbeatable Functionality
With the end grain of each board exposed at the surface, this type of countertop is superb for food preparation of all kinds - light or heavy duty, chopping, slicing, dicing, and trimming. The fibers of the wood will actually absorb any knife cuts and pull back together, maintaining the original appearance even through daily use.


One-of-a-Kind Beauty
The piecework construction of end grain butcher block offers a beautifully varied, irregular checkerboard appearance that highlights all the tones and grains in your chosen hardwood. It looks rustic and natural in a farmhouse kitchen, or modern and sustainable in a garden-to-table working kitchen.


Premium Durability
Every component of your kitchen should be long-lasting in condition, appearance, and value. A custom-built end grain butcher block countertop from Country Mouldings will be all three. The dense, strong structure of this style countertop yields a remarkably durable surface, even in the most-used room in the home.
