Custom Beech Butcher Block Countertop Options
When you order your countertop from the Hardwood Lumber Company, you have a wide variety of options. Learn more about each of the customization choices we offer. Hardwood Lumber Company edge grain butcher block countertops are made with 1" wide edge grain strips. Solid wood strips go the full length of our butcher block countertops, giving them both a great look and durability.
We can mill Beech Edge Grain Countertops up to 4-1/2” thick, 84'' wide, and 114" long.
We offer a wide selection of finish options for your countertop, including options like acrylic polyurethane, poured epoxy, and teak oil. You can choose to leave your beech countertop unfinished if you would like to complete this step yourself. We also offer stain match services if you need your countertop to match other features in your home.
Edge Detail and Texture
Edge details allow you to further custom the look and feel of your countertop. Choose from a variety of edge details, including Rustic Edge, French Tradition, and Cove & Bead. If you prefer to have your countertop sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
Wire Brushed texture works best on wood with an open grain, like Beech. On other tighter grain wood species the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Cuts and Countertop Prepping
To make installation easier, we offer custom CNC cuts and countertop prepping. Specify the types of prepping or cuts you want, and provide drawings if applicable.
Our countertops are sanded and maintained perfectly on top, while the bottom is left in a potentially rough state, untouched, because when installed it will never be visible. Most of our woodworkers are craftsmen from the local Amish community, providing great attention to quality and detail throughout the manufacturing process.
All wood countertops are custom made to order. Shipping may vary depending on your customization options. Please provide for a standard lead of 3-5 weeks for processing, milling, and shipping of all custom countertop orders.
Due to high order volume, countertops are temporarily three to four weeks behind schedule.
