Hickory Butcher Block Countertop

A growing trend in kitchen renovation or upgrade projects is a move towards top quality natural materials, and towards added-value features that are both functional and beautiful. A custom-selected, hardwood butcher block countertop from Country Mouldings fits perfectly with this trend. Here you can review the benefits and options available as you consider your own hardwood butcher block countertop.

Sturdy, Meticulous Construction
At Country Mouldings, our edge grain butcher blocks are created by gluing premium hardwood boards - each 1" wide, of a wood of your choice - together face to face. Each board runs the length of the countertop for a clean, uniform look. The slight variations in the tones of each individual board result in each butcher block countertop having a one-of-a-kind character and beauty that will be the focal point of your kitchen. Our experienced woodworkers assemble each butcher block with professional care and attention, working slowly and methodically to ensure a top-quality final product.

Why Butcher Block Hardwood?

Warm and Elegant
Homeowners are moving away from the chill of granite and stainless steel in their kitchens, and gravitating towards a welcoming warmth - but they don't want to sacrifice the elegance of the stone-and-steel look. A premium hardwood butcher block countertop is a refined, upscale addition for any kitchen; it adds instant warmth to the room; and it is an amazing, long-lasting value.

Remarkably Functional
The sturdy construction of these countertops allows them to be ideal surfaces for food preparation - including cutting and dicing food directly on the countertop - and to stand up to the heavy, everyday use that happens naturally in the busiest room in any home. In the kitchen, every feature must be practical - but it doesn't hurt to look amazing doing it.

Matches Your Vision
Choosing a butcher block countertop at Country Mouldings is like being the proverbial kid in a candy store.

Want your countertop thick and substantial? Choose a thickness of up to 4-1/2".

Prefer blonde woods? Dark browns? Reddish toned? Choose from fourteen premium hardwoods - or ask us for anything you don't see.

Don't want to finish the wood yourself? Bypass our unfinished selections and choose from a food-grade mineral oil finish - or a conversion varnish for non-food-prep usage.
