edge grain countertops
Edge Grain construction is our most popular option and is the best choice for kitchen & workshop areas that will see heavy use. We use only straight rails in our Edge Grain tops, no end-to-end or finger jointing.
face grain countertops
Face Grain, or Plank, countertops are perfect for a top that won't be directly cut on and when the customer wishes to see more of the grain and character of the wood.
End grain countertops
End Grain tops are built using the traditional butcher block style construction. They are best suited for small areas and ideal for use as a chopping block.
READ MORE ABOUT OUR COUNTERTOPS
It is important to read and understand the following information to get the best out of your new hardwood top. On our end, great care and craftsmanship goes into creating a top that is beautiful and durable. The information provided below will help maintain your top for years to come.
When you order a top from us it will be made exactly to your specifications with a +/- allowance of about 3/16". It is highly recommended to at least apply a food-grade mineral oil finish especially on orders that ship. If you still want to order an unfinished top, the warranty coverage is limited.
Once your top leaves our shop, it will need to acclimate to its new environment and you may notice slight movement. This is a completely natural occurrence. Typically, the expansion or contraction of the wood will occur along the width and the likelihood increases as the width increases. Once the top acclimates and the moisture content equalizes, it should straighten out. When installing a newly delivered top, you may want to wait a few days for the acclimation to occur. Always allow for natural expansion and contraction of your top once installed.
Extreme humidity or dryness may exaggerate expansion and contraction enough to potentially cause small cracks in the wood. If desired, fill these small cracks with matching wood filler.
Care & Maintenance
Clean your top like you would any surface, not allowing water to stand on the surface for any length of time. For best results, clean finished surfaces with soapy water or commonly available kitchen countertop cleaners. Do not use abrasives or powder cleansers. Do not use bleach to clean your top. Wipe up any spills immediately.
Finished tops are ready to use and will not require any sanding or additional finishing. The typical finish is clear and oil based. To properly maintain these kinds of tops, use applications of mineral oil or a wood paste wax.
