Custom Wood Countertops

More walnut? Actually, this is a hickory countertop with a dark walnut stain. The homeowners wanted a little more "toughness" to their countertops and opted for stained hickory. How tough? They still make tool handles and baseball bats from hickory, so tough enough for a residential kitchen.

Counter tops - Is mesquite used in counter tops and how do they hold up?

Judy - Mesquite would be a fine choice for a wood species for a wood countertop. The lumber tends to be on the shorter side so longer countertops (10'+) might feature butt-joints throughout in order to achieve the overall length your kitchen/design might require. This is opposite to how we typical build (we use full-length pieces) but a reality when working in mesquite (or other woods that run on the shorter side).

This particular countertop is hickory/pecan that has been stained to look like walnut. Under our permanent finish we can stain to any color.
