Wood Countertop Material:

Typically, wood countertops are made from butcher block. Butcher block is made by taking straight cuts of wood and glueing them together in order to create thick slabs that provide a sturdy work surface.

Wood Countertop Maintenance:

Butcher block countertops typically require oiling every six months. This helps keep the wood protected and moisturized. Different woods come with different finishing oil recommendations and it’s best to follow the instructions of your installer. You will want to use the right type of oil, etc. Butcher block countertops are soft and stainable and require some maintenance.
