The butcher’s block worktops are an excellent addition to both the modern and traditional kitchen. They offer a high-quality, hardwearing practical area for food preparation, as well as creating a stunning feature full of warmth, character and charm. They are available in a range of thicknesses to fit in with your kitchen design and can be teamed with other similar woods. Or used to soften the look of hard materials, such as granite or marble.
Butcher’s blocks are created, by fusing together end grains of wood staves, in a vertical formation to make the familiar checkerboard effect. This design technique directly contrasts with the usual horizontal stave worktop construction we often see. This design exposes the resilient end grain of the wood and gives a highly durable, hardwearing and tactile surface. Perfect for food preparation, cutting and chopping. Having a ready-made chopping board will save you both time and space. It also removes the need to hunt for an elusive chopping board each time you prepare food. As well as the need to store multiple boards, that take up valuable cupboard space and often need replacing.
