|ACRYLIC URETHANE FINISH. We use three coats of a two-component acrylic urethane developed from advanced European resin technology. This gives the butcher block countertops a hard and durable finish for superior resistance to abrasion, water, staining, household chemicals and body oils. The acrylic urethane used on our wood countertops contains UV absorbers and is formaldehyde free.
MINERAL OIL FINISH. We use two coats of a food-grade mineral oil on the top surface and all four sides of our butcher block countertops. The butcher blocks are sanded between each coat of mineral oil. Follow up maintenance coats need to be reapplied periodically to re-seal the wood butcher block. The bottom side of our butcher block countertops are sealed with an acrylic urethane sealer (to eliminate the need to re-seal the bottom).
All of our knotty alder butcher block countertops are custom-made to your specifications at our manufacturing facility in Burton, Ohio. Our staff consists mostly of local Amish woodworkers. We can make knotty alder butcher block countertops 3'' thick on smaller tops and up 72'' wide by 115'' long. We also make wood countertops in mixed species.
Our knotty alder butcher block countertops are made from 1'' strips glued together running the full length of the top. We do not butt joint or finger joint any of our strips! We use a water-resistant glue for all the butcher blocks.
Knotty alder backsplashes are available to match your wood countertop.
KNOTTY ALDER. Knotty Alder wood is light tan or light brown with a yellow or reddish ting. The fine even texture and moderate density of alder wood makes it easy to work with. Alder sands and polishes easily, stains readily, and seldom splits. We use only the higher quality grades of knotty alder lumber for our butcher block countertops.
