Product Overview

Hardwood Reflections countertops are made of solid wood staves that are finger jointed and edge glued for a classic butcher block look. A variety of species are available so you can pick a color and style that works for your space. The countertops are sold unfinished, so you can customize your piece with any common DIY woodworking options, including cutting in sinks, creating joints for corners, routing edges, distressing, or making custom shaped pieces for a unique install. Multiple finish options are also available, including stain from Hardwood reflections, varnishes, poly topcoats, or food safe mineral oils and conditioners. Alder is a relatively uniform light tan color and can be slightly reddish, with a fine straight grain pattern. Alder is a soft wood and very easy to machine, cut, and shape, making it ideal for applications where a lot of customization is needed, or a distressed look is desirable.

Yes, you need to stain or oil in order to protect the unfinished surface.

the ends are not beveled but the front and back edges have a radius so you wouldn't be able to butt them together, you could set up a straight edge to follow and cut them on a 45.

If you have clamps long enough to hold them and wood glue, it is easily possible. Suggest getting a dowel or biscuit connector tool to be sure the surfaces line up perfectly! Worth the cost, inexpensive tools are available.

Yes they do, however i cut and fitted it myself

I need a specific size. Can I have the countertop piece cut at Home Depot after purchasing it?

Ask you local Home Depot. Since Home Depot has rough blades leave 1/8" long and sand down.

Before ordering I wanted to verify that this is a 10’ length. The title says 10’ but the description has it listed at 4

It's 4 feet long.

Unfinished means it needs sanding down to get a smooth surface before applying a stain or paint?

Personally, I would not put a finished countertop in a location where it would see frequent rain and or sun. If you do, you'll need to protect it well with appropriate products.

Do you sell a matching backsplash for this countertop?

I used beautiful glass tile for mine.

Great butcher block!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Arrived well packaged. Was straight and level. The good side was very good and even the B side could have been used if one wanted the look of a few knots-rustic. Since the block was already sanded to the grit I wanted for my gel stain, (Varathane Java gel stain) gave a quick scotchbrite grey pad, no hand pressure scuff, wiped with mineral spirits to clean, then a bit of a flood of spirits, immediately rubbed in stain and took off excess. Zero botching which I was afraid of, but didn’t materialize. Let dry overnight. Templated for undermount sink on the sink run. Skill saw and then finished with 1/4” round over router bit. Lateral lips of sink opening damed up with parchment and clamped boards and finished with Nu Lustre 55 epoxy. That was 4 days though because I needed to have each of the 4 sides level to the floor for the epoxy to set. But now it is waterproof. Did faucet opening as well. The top and bottom of slabs I top coated with Osmo satin 3043. I just followed the “floor” instruction video from Osmo. Simply rolled on with a small nap micro fibre roller, and after applying, light full length no pressure rolls to even out roll lines. They disappeared in seconds flat. Couldn’t be easier. 2-3 coats recommend with overnight drying in between. The boards were pretty dry and it’s always dry here in the winter, so I put on 4 thin coats waiting a full 24 hours in between. A little Osmo goes a long way. It’s coverage is incredible. Got a quart at Windsor Plywood for 60. Covered 4 coats of 98” long and 72” long and still have 1/2 quart remaining. The butcher block counter looks amazing. Very impressed, great value for money. I only gave 4 stars due to time it took to arrive from the states. But, delivery was included, so I guess you have to expect a bit of a delay. Could have been customs as well. Was 5 weeks and was also the holiday season. All in all, couldn’t be happier.

I don't see how you can beat the quality of this butcher block for the price, also the packaging was well thought out and the board was well protected. Great deal, pick it up!

This is a pretty nice piece of wood - however there were several dings/marks and splitting wood on the "A" side. We ended up using the knotty side, which was OK. There were dings on that side as well, but were not as significant as the other side. The knots were reasonable and don't interfere with the use of the counter, and in fact add interest. The dings however, were very disappointing. We made do, as I did not want to send it back.

A little disappointed with this one. It’s the third one I’ve gotten and the first two were great. This one had two B sides. There was filler used on the A side that showed up harshly after staining. The sides had grooves and the A side had a crack. So bad I’m using the B side up with all it’s knots as the top.

I absolutely love this butcher block. It was the perfect fit for our kitchen island and went on top of our existing island base beautifully. I also loved the warm tones that came out of the wood when we started applying polyurethane to it. This block is beautiful and affordable.

The slab was just what we were looking for. We installed it in our laundry room over the washer and dryer for folding and made wood slab waterfall edges on each side. We put a coat of white stain and then a matte finish clear coat on top and it’s gorgeous!
