Butcherblock Countertops are perfect for a kitchen that gets a lot of use, as they are sturdy, strong, and resilient. Besides their functionality, the unique patterns in each piece adds unmatched beauty to the rest of the room. When installed and maintained properly, your Butcherblock Countertop can last for decades.
Here at The Vermont Butcherblock Company we pride ourselves in crafting beautiful, high-quality Butcherblock Countertops. We use full-length strips of either Hard Maple, Black Walnut, or Cherry wood, and never use fillers or finger joints.
Due to COVID-19 there is a shortage of certain wood species throughout the country, which means it is taking us longer than usual to meet the current demand for some of our items. With this in mind, please allow 8-10 weeks for delivery.
Prior to installation, your Butcherblock Countertop will need to be finish sanded with an orbital sander, as well as have your desired finish applied.
This is the wider side of a length of wood that is cut so one side is wider than the other
The surface has a wide grain pattern and shows naturally occurring swirls and/or ovals in the wood
Looks more like a tabletop, with 4" - 6" wide wood planks
Unfinished wood will check, crack, and/or "cup" due to moisture moving in and out of the wood. This occurs during changes in seasons as well as changes in humidity levels. To avoid these issues use a high quality, long lasting and durable penetrating oil finish.

Apply the same amount of finish to all surfaces, sides, and ends of your Butcherblock Countertop
When installing on cabinets, we typically drill ⅝” holes in the top plates of the cabinets and secure the top with screws and fender washers. Table tops should be attached to bases with sliding brackets.
