Country Mouldings Butcher Block Countertops Are Built to Last

At Country Mouldings, we understand that countertops are the backbone of a kitchen. They need to be strong, durable and able to stand up to the demands of your kitchen. That is why we craft our butcher block countertops from full-length solid strips which are inherently stronger than the alternative of pressed wood covered with laminate. Our method not only makes the countertops aesthetically pleasing, it also makes them stronger and more durable. With the exception of knotty pine and knotty alder, we use FAS and Select Grade lumber when creating all of our countertops. These are the finest grades of lumber that you can find. The other butcher block alternatives will show signs of wear and tear much easier than a wood countertop. When you are choosing a product for your home, choosing a quality piece that is durable can ensure that you will enjoy your countertops for many years to come.
