Maple Butcher Block Counter & Island Tops In Classic End Grain Style Rock maple is the most popular species of North American hardwood used in making butcher block countertops. Its fine grain pattern and neutral color palette make it suitable for virtually any kitchen decor. Plus maple tends to be least expensive among the hardwood. If you like naturally beautiful maple (and who doesn't?), but you're after a distinctive look, then end-grain maple butcher block might be just the ticket. In the making of an end-grain butcher's board, short pieces of wood standing on their ends and arranged in a grid-like pattern are bonded together under high pressure and heat. The result is a block that resembles a natural checkerboard, as gorgeous as it is strong and durable. End-Grain Butcher Block Has Advantages Other Than Its Great Looks Since the surface of an end grain board is comprised of the fibrous ends of short wood strips (hence the name, end grain), it's resilient yet forgiving. Knife blades essentially slide between wood fibers as the board absorbs the blow of the knife. That's what makes end-grain boards perfect for heavy-duty slicing and chopping. Plus they help keep knives from dulling, leaving them sharper longer.

Wood Countertops Crafted Of Hard Rock Maple And Built To Last We trust John Boos Co. of Effingham, IL to make our maple countertops. They've been manufacturing butcher block for more than a century and use only the finest North American hardwood. Rock maple is a stiff, dense wood, so it's strong enough to withstand tough everyday tasks like chopping vegetables. But lightly sanded, it provides a smooth, easy-to-use work surface that's perfect for rolling pastry dough, for instance. Most people choose a Natural Oil finish and add Boos Mystery Oil or Boos Board Cream with Beeswax to their orders. Reapplying oil or cream monthly will sustain the luster and longevity of butcher block. Most scars and stains can be resolved by lightly sanding the affected area with a fine grit sand paper, then applying oil or cream. If instead, you seek a fine-furniture look for your counters and do not intend to cut directly upon them, consider a Varnique semi-gloss varnish-like finish. It's virtually maintenance free! Our maple butcher block counter tops come in thicknesses of 1.5", 1.75", 2.25" and 3". Standard-size lengths range from 12" to 145", and widths range from 25" to 48".

Because your kitchen countertop endures a lot of use, it should be above all practical, but that doesn't mean it can't be aesthetically pleasing as well. It's important to strike that perfect balance between style and function, which is why durability, visual appeal and ease of maintenance are among the top three guiding factors for choosing the right counter. As you remodel your kitchen, consider all the materials — everything from high-end marble countertops to granite countertops and butcher block countertops — and decide which one is right for your needs. Read on to learn more about your options.

Laminate Counters


Laminate surfaces are inexpensive, available in a range of options, and easy to maintain. The downside is that they are not heat tolerant, and edges and seams are generally visible. They also scratch and chip easily, which is not easily repaired.

Solid Surface Counters


With no visible seams, lots of patterns and colors available and a renewable quality that allows cuts and scratches to be blended out, solid surfaces (which are basically a plastic) have several advantages. The downsides are that they’re not heat resistant, are pricier and require professional installation.

Granite Countertops, Marble Countertops and Other Natural Stones


Granite, slate, soapstone, quartz, marble, limestone and gemstone all fall under this category. Long-lasting natural stone has an organic beauty and is more heat tolerant than other surfaces. It also expensive, and its porous quality requires sealing maintenance to prevent stains.

Engineered Stone Countertops


Engineered stone mimics natural stone, yet combines the properties of real stone with other ingredients to eradicate its porosity and maintenance requirements. This option, however, can be expensive depending on color choice.

Wood and Butcher Block Countertops


Great for a cutting surface, wood and butcher block options give the kitchen a warmer aesthetic than stone. Wood surfaces are susceptible to water damage if not properly sealed, and can dent and scratch easily.

Metal Counters


Metal surfaces, including stainless steel, copper or pewter, are heat tolerant, non-porous and sanitary. Like wood, though, they also can scratch and dent easily.

Concrete Countertops


Surfaces created from concrete or cement have the ability to incorporate inlaid decorative details or useful implements like trivets. However, they’re prone to hairline cracks and are extremely heavy.

Composite/Recycled Counters


Eco-friendly and similar to natural stone, recycled products are warmer to the touch than other options. Because they’re naturally made, they may fade over time.

Lavastone Counters


This unique application of volcanic lava hardened into a stone-like consistency is heat, scratch and stain resistant and nonporous. However, because it’s uncommon, it’s expensive and hard to come by.

Tile Counters


Tile surfaces come in an endless variety of styles and colors, are heat tolerant and durable, and can be very affordable depending on the chosen tile. Due to grout lines, they’re not very easy to clean.

Glass Counters


This hygienic, non-porous surface is simple to maintain, heat tolerant, stain resistant and available in many styles, colors and textures. They can be expensive, show fingerprints and water spots, and can crack easily.
