Wood Butcher Block Countertops can add warmth and natural coloring to your home. It is a soft material easy on your belongings that is long lasting and durable if maintained properly. Here are some things you need to know regarding Butcher Block countertops:

Wood counters are not heat or stain resistant. Hot pans can not be set down on the counter without a pad or trivet.

Butcher block requires some maintenance. Natural Penetrating Oil Finish seals and protects the surface of the wood and unlike a polyurethane finish, can be cut directly upon the surface. It is recommended to re-oil the wood surface every 3-4 months. This maintenance keeps the butcher block from drying out and helps preserve the block and extend its life over time. Natural oil finishes can easily be sanded and re-oiled for a like-new appearance.

Being softer, butcher block countertops are more vulnerable to scratches and dents, however nicks and burns can be lightly sanded and the surface re-oiled.

It expands or contracts as the temperature fluctuates. The wood can swell and shrink in conditions of extreme dryness or humidity, which may cause cracking.
