I believe this was a #2 common red oak with a Watco oil finish. The planks were about 6" width. #2 oak has more "character" (knots, flaws, etc.) than a higher grade oak.

Butcher block in various woods can also be ordered... and I think an undermount sink works if you use marine-grade sealant along that open sink-side surface. That wood really warmed up this otherwise dull kitchen!

Very well designed. I like the glass-front cabinet, which I imagine is probably right across from the dishwasher to allow for easy unloading. The area between stove and fridge provides plenty of prep space, and there are plenty of cabinets to hold all your cooking and baking supplies. There's plenty of space on the island to spread out all your cookie sheets. The leg of the island seems oversize to me, but that may just be an illusion due to the camera angle.
