07 Apr A Look at Butcher Block Countertops
What Are Butcher Block Countertops?
Cuts of wood are assembled to create slabs. Once upon a time, actual butchers used these wooden slabs for their daily work.
- Face Grain- If you need to do heavy-duty chopping, though this probably isn’t going to be the best choice.
- Edge Grain- Both durable and affordable, which gives you the best of both worlds. When you want to have a butcher block countertop installed, then this is the way to go!
- End Grain- With this design, you can emphasize the tree rings that can also make your countertops draw the eye.
Do They Last? You can get up to 20 years lifespan from your butcher block countertops if you do everything you need to take care of it! So what do you do? Clear off the surface and then use a sandpaper block to remove any signs of staining
Then use a damp rag to wipe away the dust. Use a paper towel and wax to rub away any residual staining.
