Red Oak Wide Plank Countertop Details
Red Oak is a very sturdy wood that ranges in color from light to medium brown with a reddish tint. It stains well and stands up to years of wear. All of our Red Oak wood countertops are custom-made to your specifications at our manufacturing facility in Ohio. Wide plank countertops do not have any butt joints or finger joints. They are made with the board face turned up (flat grain).
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 (approximately 2 to 3 days 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.
Red Oak Countertop Options
Since our butcher block countertops are made to order, you have a variety of options to customize your red oak counter.
We can make Red Oak wide plank countertops up to 1-3/4” thick, 84'' wide, and 162" long.
Choose from a variety of finish options for your countertop, or leave it unfinished if you would like to complete this step yourself. We offer stain match services if you need your countertop to match other features in your home.
Edge Detail and Texture
Make your countertop stand out with elaborate edge details such as 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, such as Red Oak. 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 because when installed, it will never be visible. Most of our woodworkers are craftsmen from the local Amish community. They provide 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 countertop orders.
