Already know what you're looking for?

#1 Draw Your Plans

Sketch out your kitchen so we can get a better understanding of the space you're working with your counter tops sizes.

Don't forget to include countertop thickness. Most counters are 1.5" thick. Some wood countertops, like end grain, will need to be thicker.

#2 Pick Your Wood Species

#3 Pick your Grain Style

Edge Grain

Edge grain is our most popular choice of countertop style. The narrower boards create a strong joint and provide a classic look, perfect for any home design.

Face Grain

Face grain exposes beautiful wood grain patterns that creates a rustic look. The wider boards make a stunning statement. Face grain typically requires thicker boards for stability.

End Grain

The choice for any professional chef, end grain countertops are bold and beautiful. This style is very labor intensive and requires thicker boards. End grain can cost quite a bit more because of this.

#4 Pick Your Edge

For a softer feel, the rounded edge provides a gentle taper from top to side.

Hand Sanded

Like the name implies, we simply hand sand the sharp edge of the counter top.

edge ogee


For those who fancy more intricate details, the ogee edge might be for you.

#5 Pick your Finish

oil countertop

Oil Finish

Our special oil formula is perfect for cutting and food prep areas. It absorbs into the wood, conditioning it to repel moisture. Easy to reapply as often as needed without sanding, this no-hassle finish keeps the wood looking fresh in functional kitchens and provides a matte finish.

Pro tip: An oil finish means the wood grain is more exposed to nicks and scratches, but this allows for easy repair sanding and quick touch-ups. Great for heavy-use islands where the marks of use lend to the warmth of the home like historic butcher blocks. 

varnish counter top

Polyurethane Finish

We use a top-of–the-line polyurethane to finish the countertop, creating a protective barrier around the wood. This option is more practical around sinks and high moisture areas. This semi-gloss finish will best maintain the initial factory look and will last for years to come.

Pro tip: A polyurethane finish is more durable than an oil finish. The life of polyurethane can vary depending on use, but to refinish the wood requires full sanding and removal of the finish. Great for moist areas and lower-maintenance applications. Cannot be used as a cutting surface.
