White Oak Island Butcherblock Unfinished Countertop by Wood Art is made in Indonesia. Kitchens are the heart of any home. Therefore, countertops play a significant role in your kitchen. Functionality is a necessity regardless of a kitchen’s size or style.
Butcher block countertops are considered one of the most affordable options for countertops. Butcher blocks aren’t heavy like marble or granite. This makes it easy to do-it-yourself. They can easily be picked up because they are lighter than marble. They are also easy to cut to size as opposed to trying to cut through marble. You should acclimate your butcher block countertops for at least 24 hours before installation. This will allow your countertop to perform properly for years to come. Having butcher block countertops professionally installed is cheaper as well. Granite or marble is more time consuming and expensive to install.
Cleaning a butcherblock countertop is easy. Simply remove any leftover food and stains. Wipe the surface with a mild soap and water mix. Disinfect the area with white vinegar and water on a cloth. Let the solution sit for a minute then wipe clean. Despite the name butcher block, you will do well to resist the urge to chop directly on its surface. Knife blades can cause uneven wear on certain regions of your countertop. You should use a dedicated chopping board for cooking prep work. If a wayward knife stroke dents the countertop, sand down the dent with a fine-grit sandpaper. A 220 grit or greater will do. Then apply mineral oil to the spot. you can use this same solution to remove burn marks on your countertop.
Above all, Wood Art is a truly green product. Wood Art uses eco plantation wood. A new tree is planted for everyone that is cut down to create these butcher block countertops.
