American red oak is solid and heavy with medium bending strength, stiffness, and high crushing strength. Red oak is hard, stable when dry, and easy to finish and stain; it is ideal for kitchen accessories like butcher blocks. Read more about the difference in wood types here.
Never put your butcher block in the dishwasher. The best way to care for these heirloom pieces is with simple soap and water after use. You can find full care instructions here.
Each piece is made from American hardwood and will vary in grain pattern and color. These features make each piece unique, and we think that makes them even more special.
