Hickory Edge Grain Countertop Details
Hickory is among the strongest types of wood. It ranges in color from white/pale to reddish brown. Hardwood Lumber Company’s hickory edge grain countertops are made with 1” wide strips that go the full length of the countertop. This increases the counter’s durability and provides a superior appearance.
Please Note: Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown. All wood countertops are custom made to order. All orders revised or cancelled after going into production (within 24 hours after order is received) will have a restocking fee of up to 50%.
Warranty Information: Please carefully read all warranty information, including installation instructions and timeframe.
Hickory Countertop Options
Hickory butcher block countertops can be custom made to your specifications. Choose from a variety of options.
We can make Hickory Edge Grain Butcher Block Countertops up to 4-1/2" thick, 84" depth, and 138" long.
Select a finish for your countertop, or choose to leave it unfinished. If you choose to stain the countertop, please note that we also offer stain match services to help you match the wood to other pieces in your home.
Our Countertops are made with a good top surface and four good sides. This means the bottom surface might have imperfections. Selecting the High-Grade Bottom Surface option allows you to have the bottom surface be the same grade as the top surface and four sides.
Edge Detail and Texture
Add decorative touches to the wood with edge details ranging from a slight eased edge to decorative classic and ogee. You can also select a texture to add more character to the wood. If you prefer to have your countertop sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
The Wire Brushed Texture works best on wood with an open grain, such as White Oak, Red Oak, and Ash. On other tighter grain wood species, such as Hickory, the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Cuts and Countertop Prepping
To make it easier to install your countertops, we offer a variety of custom CNC cuts, angle cuts, and joint prepping. Whether you need to install your countertop around a sink or stove, or you need a specific angle cut or joint prepping, we want to make the installation process as easy as possible. 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 1 to 2 weeks for processing, milling, and shipping of countertop orders.
Hickory is the hardest, heaviest and strongest American wood. The sapwood of hickory is white, tinged with inconspicuous fine brown lines while the heartwood is pale to reddish brown. Hickory is coarse-textured and the grain is fine, usually straight but can be wavy or irregular. The wood can be sanded to a good finish. Hickory grain pattern welcomes a full range of medium-to-dark finishes. We use only the higher quality grades of hickory lumber for our products.
