An End-Grain Maple Butcher Block Countertop Will Set Your Kitchen Apart
Rock maple is the most popular North American hardwood species used in making butcher block countertops. Its fine grain pattern and neutral color palette make it suitable for virtually any kitchen décor. Plus, maple is a very affordable hardwood.
End-Grain Butcher Block Has Advantages Other Than Its Great Looks
If it’s an especially distinctive look you’re after, then end-grain maple butcher block might be just the ticket. In making an end-grain butcher’s block, short pieces of wood standing on their ends are arranged in a grid-like pattern then bonded together under high pressure and heat. The result is a block that resembles a wooden checkerboard, as gorgeous as it is strong and durable.
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 these wood fibers, allowing the board to absorb repeated blows. That’s what makes end-grain blocks perfect for heavy-duty slicing and chopping. Plus, they help knives stay sharper longer, since they keep them from dulling prematurely.
