What Houzz contributors are saying:
Drop-in cutting boards used to be relatively common in the ’60s and ’70s, but their popularity waned as people found that they wore out quickly with use. Enter the integrated butcher block, the drop-in’s bigger, badder cousin. It, too, can sit flush with the rest of your countertop. But it won’t show wear as easily. This one is custom made in walnut and can be resanded to its original, pristine state if knife marks become bothersome.Add this feature when you’re replacing your countertops to ensure a flush finish. The cost will vary widely; I’ve seen them from as low as $140 up to $720, depending on size.
