BUTCHER BLOCK COUNTERTOP ADVANTAGES
- End Grain Construction style is considered to be the best surface for cutting, chopping, and direct food preparation.
- Knives stay sharp far longer on these surfaces because the edge slips between the fibers rather than slicing across them.
- The construction style allows the ability to make a very large table without needing seams, which creates a truly colossal appearance.
