Walnut Edge Grain Butcher Block Product Details
Hardwood Lumber Company’s 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 appearance and more durability than blended butcher blocks where short strips are joined together.
Butcher block countertops are a great choice for kitchens or any other room if you like the natural warmth and beauty of wood. They’re great for island tops, tabletops or bar tops. Our walnut butcher block countertops are made with a high-quality combination of sapwood and heartwood.
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.
About Our True Walnut
Our walnut countertops contain a fine mixture of less than 40% sapwood and greater than 60% heartwood. This makes the pieces look vibrant and colorful while maintaining the rigidity necessary for a countertop. All our walnut pieces are sourced and maintained from true undisturbed black walnut. These pieces are as close as you can get to 100% natural walnut. If you’re looking for a natural and beautiful dark countertop, True Walnut is the only choice.
Walnut Countertop Options
Our edge grain walnut countertops can be customized to fit the look of your home.
Walnut butcher block countertops can be custom made to your specifications with thickness up to 4-1/2", width up to 84" and length up to 138".
Butcher block countertops are available unfinished or prefinished with acrylic urethane 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.
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
Our walnut butcher block countertops can be made with a large selection of edge details ranging from a slight eased edge to decorative classic and ogee edge details. You can also add a texture to your walnut countertops to enhance the look and make it your own. 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 Walnut. On other tighter grain wood species the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
Angle Cuts and Joint Prepping
Hardwood Lumber can cut and prep your butcher block for installation in your kitchen. Just select the specifications you need. If you want assistance with selecting the right prepping, give us a call at 800-798-1269. We now offer the option for a sink cutout, stove cutout and other custom cuts. Our CNC cutting machines create precise cuts so you know the butcher block will fit just right.
Our butcher block countertops are also available in many other hardwood species. Edge grain butcher block countertops can also be made with mixed wood species.
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.

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.
