The only word that can be used to describe the two pieces that Armani put together for me is "ART". The beauty in each piece that made up these end grain countertops is indescribeable. I have had many people visit my kitchen and look at each countertop and they have all been amazed. An industry carpenter that specializes in cabinetry took one look at the pieces and was at a lost for words. He exclaimed that in his 25 years of experience he has never come across such a beautiful countertop. At 2" in thickness, it transformed my kitchen and gave it a very sophisticated and upscale appearance. Armani was a couple days behind on production, however it was explained that one of the pieces did not come out to the standards that Armani was pleased with so it was re-done. As a fellow perfectionist, I had no issues with that. Great job, great service, and an even finer product.

Premium Hardwood: Our Calico Hickory is sustainably sourced from the Southern and Southeastern United States where Hickory grows best. We choose the highest quality kiln dried lumber. Since Hickory is an extremely hard domestically grown hardwood, it makes for a very durable end grain butcher block countertop.
Beautiful Color and Design: This end grain butcher block countertop features the full color spectrum of the Hickory tree, with creamy golden browns and yellows. Based on your size and thickness needs, we arrange the wood to create a beautiful and elegant countertop to be a focal point of your kitchen. Choose our safe-for-chopping mineral oil and organic beeswax finish for an active-use chopping block or opt for one of our more protective not-for chopping finish options such as Monocoat or Everlast Satin Varnish.
Ready to Use: We condition our countertops with mineral oil and beeswax finish for safety, so that you can prepare food on them with peace of mind. This finish is natural, beautiful, and made in-house at our shop. As opposed to the horizontal orientation of edge grain, the end grain wood’s vertical orientation makes a “catch and release” mechanism for your knives, meaning that your knives will stay sharper longer.
Long Life: We proudly build durable, high-quality wood countertops with only the best kiln dried hardwood we can find, so that your purchase is both beautiful and functional for years to come. Look no further than our care and maintenance instructions, with step-by-step guides explaining how to maintain the mineral oil and organic beeswax finish once it arrives to your home.
