Green Mountain Custom Butcher Block
This top is maple. We build custom butcher block and often distress them to give them a more lived in feel. If you want to chop on a wood top, you should choose a Natural Oil finish that is food safe.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Our friends at DIYLife shared this project for updating butcher block countertops to their former glory. All it takes is a little elbow grease, some mineral oil and a sander.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to How to Care for Your Countertops
4. Butcher block countertops are typically made of maple or oak and come in wide plank or narrow strips in terms of style. The wide plank style is more apt to warp. 5. Be sure to use only food-grade mineral oil to prevent the wood from warping and drying out. Avoid vegetable or olive oils for your butcherblock countertop — these oils can turn rancid. 6. Reapply mineral oil whenever the wood looks dry. You'll want to use a generous amount of mineral oil — continue reapplying until you see the wood is no longer accepting any more oil.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Materials: Kitchen Countertops
Butcher BlockComposed of smaller pieces of wood, butcher block can make great use of reclaimed or repurposed material. Sustainable butcher block can come from diverse sources, such as reclaimed shipping pallets or deconstructed buildings. Your knives will love this surface and, after it shows some age, you can just sand the wood a bit and refinish with a food-grade natural oil.Cost: $30 to $85 per square foot for the material only

Butcher block island opposite of range could be nice for chopping! But will show wear. Could put range on island for cooking demos and have the counter top transition to a butcher block top a few inches away to protect from heat?
