Walnut End Grain Countertop Details
Walnut is a durable wood with a rich color that makes a stunning statement in any home. It can range from creamy white (sapwood) to dark brown (heartwood). The heartwood may contain various tints such as purple or red.
This Walnut countertop is made from 1 ½" square blocks with the end grain facing up. End grain butcher block is great for preserving your knives since the blade cuts between wood fibers rather than into the wood.
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.
Walnut Butcher Block Countertop Options
We offer various customization options to help you create your ideal countertop. First, choose a size for your butcher block. Then add other details like a finish, texture, and custom CNC cuts.
We can make Walnut end grain butcher block countertops up to 4-1/2" thick, 48" wide and 120" long. Put your needed dimensions into the corresponding boxes above.
For best results, wooden countertops should be finished. We can finish your butcher block for you and offer various food-safe materials like Mineral Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil. If you choose to finish your countertop yourself, be sure to follow all directions in the Hardwood Lumber Company Countertop Finishing and Installation Guide.
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 details can enhance the appearance of your Walnut countertop. Choose a polished look such as bevel or ogee, or make it more rustic with a faux live edge. View all edge detail options and choose the one that’s right for you.
Cuts and Countertop Prepping
We make countertop installation easier with custom cuts and prepping. Specify the angle cut, prepping, and/or custom CNC cut you want. Please be prepared to upload a drawing of any custom designs.
All wood countertops are custom made to order. Shipping may vary depending on your customization options. Please provide for a standard lead time of 1 to 2 weeks for processing, milling, and shipping of countertop orders.
Note: Lead times may vary based on seasonal demand. Please contact our sales team online or by phone at 1-800-798-1269 for questions regarding current order lead times.
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.
