Though we are not the manufacturer of this particular island top (or at least if we are I don't have a record of it!), this is an Edge Grain construction butcher block. Based on this photo alone I am not certain of the species but it could be Teak or possibly Maple (slightly more yellow/white) or White Oak(slightly more beige with some light brown possible).

Maple butcher block is available as a DIY option up to 48" wide and as much as 168" long here:

White Oak Plank DIY is available here in up to 48"x168" as well: https://store.craft-art.com/store/homeowner-diy-you-can-do-it/white-oak-plank-style-homeowner-diy/

Or if you like the teak, that's available as a custom option which can be quoted precisely to your specifications in the Wood Countertop Quote Tool: https://store.craft-art.com/configurator/custom_top/shape/

Photos are (in order):
1. White Oak
2. Hard Maple
3. Teak

From the corner of the island to the window corner in the background is 15'-1" x 9'-1". This does not include the space to the left of the island which was a walkway and additional cabinets not shown in the image, but is shown in other images of this project. The total kitchen was 15'-1" x 16'-6"

I wanted to ask the same thing - can you tell us the species and also something about the stain used? They almost look "pickled" to me (a look I love, by the way!)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to How to Work With a Kitchen Designer
Settle on a time line and a number of draft plans. Kitchen designers don't expect to nail it on the first try — some back and forth is usually built into the process. Agree upon how many drafts of the plan you'll see before you sign a contract and part with any cash. You should also confirm a time line for the work, though circumstances beyond anyone's control can throw even the best-orchestrated jobs off schedule.

This is a unique layout because of the amount of windows. Most homes do not have this many windows in the kitchen. I like ow the cabinets go to the ceiling to take advantage of that space.
