Enjoy the rustic elegance and natural charm of our Knotty Alder butcher block countertops. Solid, open knots of all shapes and sizes that often vary in color and texture throughout the wood are common characteristics of Knotty Alder. The sapwood is nearly white when the wood is freshly cut but quickly changes when exposed. The heartwood is light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. The wood is fairly straight-grained with a uniform texture. Knotty alder often has small and large split knots and open knots that may go completely through the wood.

Add beauty and value to your home with our custom made Knotty Alder Wood Butcher Block Countertops. Our Knotty Alder Wood Butcher Block Countertops are quality made with sturdy construction to your specifications. Our butcher block countertops feature full length strips that are 1" wide. The first and last strip may be less than 1" wide. They are offered in edge grain with any thickness up to 5" and almost any length. Knotty Alder Wood Butcher Block Countertops are offered in standard and custom sizes.

Knotty Alder wood butcher block countertops are available up to 10 feet long, 84 inches wide and 5 inches thick. If you don't see your desired size online, request a custom butcher block quote.

Finishing Choices

If your butcher block will not be used for any food preparation, conversion varnish is the recommended choice.

Unfinished: Apply the finish of your choice. All butcher blocks must be sealed and finished. There are many choices available from your local paint store, online and various other outlets. The butcher block you will receive will be fully sanded. Light sanding may still be required before and between coats of finish. You can also stain your butcher block countertop prior to finishing. If you will be preparing food directly on the block, please check the label or with the finish manufacturer to determine if it is food safe. Most stains are not food safe.

Mineral Oil: Two coats of a food safe mineral oil are applied to all surfaces. After you receive your butcher block, you should apply one coat of mineral oil to the top surface daily for one week, and monthly thereafter. You should also apply one coat of mineral oil to the sides, edges and any exposed areas underneath on this same schedule. Frequency of application can vary, but it is important to keep the butcher block well oiled. Food safe mineral oil is available at most drug stores. This is appropriate if the butcher block may be used for food preparation.

Conversion Varnish: Three coats of our 45 sheen, catalyzed, commercial grade conversion varnish are applied to the top surface. Our conversion varnish contains acrylic for extra durability. Two coats are applied to all other surfaces. This is not appropriate if the butcher block may be used for food preparation.

Knotty Alder butcher block countertop, unfinished, 1-1/2" x 40" x 90"

The counter tops are absolutely beautiful and the finish is amazing. We sized everything just right, so they all fit beautifully. I have recommended your website to several people who have used butcher block or are looking to. The customer service was outstanding, the fact that you read what our order was for and called to let us know that we picked the wrong wood, as well as recommending another high quality wood while keeping our price the same was greatly appreciated. Again, the call and recommendation were priceless and I can't express how much the attention to detail meant to us. We will use you again in the future and recommend others to you.
