Northern European Birch Butcher Block Kitchen Countertop is a stunning addition to any project. The warmth and charm of wood can bring to life to your home. Birch is as beautiful as it is practical. It is one of the most popular countertops throughout the world. The birch is a slow-growth, closed grain hardwood harvested from sustainable forests. This countertop is a durable hardwood and has similar looks and physical properties to hard maple. Birch is known for its ease of sanding, finishing, and clean look with a consistent color. Remember that wood is a product of nature. The allure of a pure wood product is that no two grain patterns, textures or colors are identical. Wood is affected by soil contents, climate, growth patterns and many other factors. These wonderfully unique features will ensure a one of a kind look for your remodel. Differences in grain, coloring or mineral streaking, as it occurred in nature, will not be considered a defect or reason for a replacement. Wood will also change with time, gradually responding to its environment, and aging with beauty.

Answer

David-Consider buying the unfinished so it matches. If that does not work you need to hit this with a scotch bright pad and then apply stain.

What kind of poly coating can I use on my new countertop?

Asked by LAWRENCE May 10, 2021

Answers

In reality, you can use either a water- based or oil-based. That being said, I’d check out Waterlox. They have some pretty amazing products that are food safe, are water or oil based (your choice) and are available in several sheens. They are easy to apply, and they offer superior technical service. I have already ordered, and received, a couple of different stains and a water-based top coat for my countertops…when I get them.

I’d like to use this in the kitchen. Is it safe to cut and do food prep on?

Asked by HP May 9, 2021

Answer

HP. I would pick the unfinished top and then treat with mineral oil or conditioner for a food safe surface. The UV will scuff up over time with lots of knife marks directly on the surface.

We do not sell a 96”x39”. These butcher blocks are designed to adjoin together with biscuit or domino joints. There are lots of videos from our hardwood reflections YouTube channel.

nice on the surface…but plywood inside?
Not sure if this is standard practice or not, but i wasn’t expecting to see plywood in the interior of the butcher block. Seems like a cost savings attempt...
by mike
Beautiful and affordable
I ordered two pieces online, 6 foot and 10 foot. I was concerned about damage because buying in store wasn’t an option but everything arrived in great condition and shipping was faster than expected. We decided to go with a natural stain and matte poly so it just brought out the color of the wood and we weren’t worried about making it food safe. I’m absolutely in love with how it turned out. We’re thinking about putting in open shelving at some point and will probably purchase the 4 foot option.
by Dexxx91
Gorgeous!
I love how these turned out! I researched a ton before deciding to use Waterlox (Tung oil) to protect the countertops. I put on three coats of the original and then sanded and put a top coat of Satin Waterlox for the final coat. This should protect them for many years and makes the countertop waterproof.

Average quality, not solid wood
Purchased three pieces for our kitchen and mud room. The finished side of all three pieces is of high quality and they look beautiful with proper sealing and treating (we used several coats of waterlox). My gripe is that these are not solid wood all the way through but rather stacked and glued wood. Our sink is a large undermount type and upon cutting the opening we found several large/hollow knots that traveled nearly all the way through that required patching. The appearance of the patch stands out. I also found that another top that was cut to size featured poor (but solid) core wood with a thinner veneer layer at the end and top for a clean finished appearance. They work fine and are if good quality for the asking price. If I were to do it all over I'd recommend spending a bit more and getting them elsewhere if you're going to have exposed cuts.

Well packed and nice top
Got it 2 weeks ago. Took a lot longer than expected but it’s because I found out mine was coming from the US. Let sit outside the packing for a day, sanded lightly with 220 sandpaper, rounded the edges a bit, applied Osmo polywax matte and it looks amazing. Wanted the made in Germany top of the line hard wax oil. Turned out great and super easy to apply 2 coats with squares of j cloths. Pre drill holes for mounting your desk legs - I went for a manual crank frame and it looks great. Would’ve gone for the slightly cheaper Alder wood that looks similar but it was out of stock

It’s a decent assemblage of solid wood. It finishes beautifully. That said, they look to have been stressed along the length and some of the finger jointed seams were open. If you order this, inspect it carefully before accepting it as it dents easily and joints damage easily

One side was better finished than the other, but I only needed to show Ione side. Rubbed in 4 coats of Danish oil with the dark walnut stain,, and three coats of wipe-on poly. Made a bathroom countertop and the sink cutout is now a cutting board.

My experience with this butcher block was excellent. The one I received was of great quality, fit and finish was perfect. I ordered the 6 foot block so I could cut it down as an enclosure around a dishwasher. I also sealed it with Rubio Monocoat Pure to bring out the natural grain figure and a beautiful honey color of the Birch.
