Hardwood Lumber Company Maple edge grain butcher block countertops with 2 Cherry strips are made with 1" wide edge grain strips. Solid wood strips go the full length of our butcher block countertops, giving them a better look and more durability then blended butcher blocks offered by other butcher block manufacturers, where short strips are joined together. Butcher block countertops are also great for island tops, tabletops, and bar tops. We now offer the option for custom sink cutouts, custom stove cutouts, and other custom cuts. 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. 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%.
If you prefer to have your countertop sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
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.
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 Maple, the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown.
Maple Edge Grain Butcher Block Countertops with 2 Cherry Strips ship within 1 to 2 weeks, depending on your customization and finish selection.
Hard Maple sapwood is creamy white with a slight reddish brown tinge and the heartwood varies from light to dark reddish brown.

We use only the higher quality grades of Hard Maple lumber for our products.

Soft Maple is usually straight-grained and has low shock resistance. Soft maple is about 25 percent less hard than hard maple. The soft maple we use for our products is selected for a white color.

Cherry heartwood varies from rich red to reddish brown and will darken with age and on exposure to light. In contrast, cherry sapwood is creamy white. Cherry wood has a fine uniform, straight grain, satiny, smooth texture, and may naturally contain brown pith flecks and small gum pockets. Cherry is easy to machine, nails and glues well and when sanded and stained, it produces an excellent smooth finish. Our clear cherry products are made with minimun sapwood. We use only the higher quality grades of clear Cherry lumber for our products.
