Butcher Block Tops
End Grain Construction
End grain construction (shown at left) is the premium construction style and our recommended surface for direct food preparation. In end grain construction, small wood pieces stand vertically to show only the ends of the wood.
Edge Grain Construction
In an edge grain top, the wood pieces are laid out with long strips running lengthwise along the top (shown at right). All strips will be continuous with no joints, unless the length of the top is excessive. In such instances we will discuss this on a case-by-case basis with you
Flat Grain Construction
In a flat grain top the wood pieces are premium-clear wide plank flat sawn boards. The pieces are generally wider in size (see image at left). Widths will vary depending on the species and sizes of wood available at the time of manufacturing and will be random sized unless otherwise specified.
