Butcher block is becoming increasingly popular with those that are remodeling their homes. But what is it? Butcher’s block is a heavy-duty material that’s used as chopping blocks, tabletops and even cutting boards. This material is typically made from maple, cherry, oak or walnut and has become popular in-home use due to its durability and rustic look.
Butcher block surfaces have been used heavily in Europe and in butcher shops all over the world for centuries. However, it’s now becoming increasingly popular in the design of kitchens throughout the United States. Many companies are starting to offer these countertops due to the fact that they are created of wood byproduct that would otherwise be discarded.
