Edge Grain

Edge grain countertops are constructed with the side of the wood up.  Straight grain lines are most visible with this style.  This method does not show the seasonal wood movement that the plank construction style shows. Edge grain countertops can be 1.25" to 6" thick.  The strips may run the entire length of the top or be randomly jointed.  Our edge grain tops are constructed with a threaded metal rod every 24" for a permanent clamping of the top.

Plank

Plank or face grain countertops are constructed with the face of the wood up.  This style best shows off the grain of the wood and creates a more formal appearance.  We carefully select and assemble the boards to best match grain and color.  Our countertops are made of boards that range in width from 4" to 6".  Our plank style tops can be 1.25" to 2.5" thick based on the wood type.  Plank tops are constructed out of strips that run the entire length of the top or are randomly jointed.


Construction Styles

End Grain

End grain or butcher block countertops are constructed with the end of the wood up.  This style provides the best option when the countertop is going to be used as a cutting surface.  It does not show wear as much as the other styles.  Our end grain countertops are constructed of squares or rectangles and can be 2.25" to 6" thick.
