Hardwood Lumber Company specializes in manufacturing quality butcher block countertops and wood countertops. Mixed Maple/Cherry/Walnut butcher block countertops can be custom made to your specifications. We can make Mixed Maple/Cherry/Walnut Edge Grain Butcher Block Countertops up to 4-1/2" thick, up to 84" wide, with a length up to 138". Butcher block countertops are available in many other hardwood species. Edge grain butcher block countertops can also be made with mixed wood species. Our butcher block countertops and wood countertops are available unfinished or prefinished. We offer butcher block countertops with the following finish options, Acrylic Polyurethane finish, Food Safe Mineral Oil, or Poured Epoxy finish. We also offer staining with the option of a standard stain color or custom stain matching. Mixed Maple/Cherry/Walnut butcher block countertops and wood countertops can be made with a large selection of edge details ranging from a slight eased edge to decorative classic and ogee edge details. Butcher block countertops and wood countertops are a great choice for kitchens or any other room if you like the natural warmth and beauty of wood. 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 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.
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 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.
Mixed Maple/Cherry/Walnut Edge Grain Butcher Block Countertops 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. Hard Maple has a close fine, uniform texture and is generally straight-grained. Hard Maple is hard and heavy with good strength properties, in particular its high resistance to abrasion and wear. We use only the higher quality grades of Hard Maple lumber for our products.
In most respects soft maple is very similar to hard maple. Generally soft maple sapwood is greyish white. The heartwood varies from light to dark reddish brown. 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. We use only the higher quality grades of Soft Maple lumber for our products.
The sapwood of walnut is creamy white, while the heartwood is light brown to dark chocolate brown, occasionally with a purplish cast and darker streaks. Walnut is generally straight-grained, but sometimes with wavy or curly grain that produces an attractive and decorative figure. Walnut works easily with hand and machine tools, and nails, screws and glues well. It holds paint and stain very well for an exceptional finish and is readily polished. Our clear walnut products are made with minimum sapwood.
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.
