Wood Butcher Block
Wood or butcher block countertops offer a attractive warm look and is
available in a wide range of colors and finishes. Hardwoods such as oak and
maple are frequently used as countertop woods. Wood countertops are smooth and
easy to clean but can promote bacteria, especially if it is constantly used as a
butcher block. It can be sanded and resealed to manufacturer's instructions as
required but can be damaged over time by stains and water. Wood or butcher block
is not recommended to be permanently installed on kitchen counters.
