We have our safe-for-chopping Mineral Oil and Organic Beeswax finish, which is the most chosen finish for our end grain butcher block countertops. Monocoat finish and Everlast Satin Varnish finishing options are also available to choose in case you're looking for a well-protected show-piece instead of an active-use chopping block.

Supreme Functionality: Don’t judge our countertops just by their looks. Food prep, specifically chopping, is made much easier with end grain wood because it's gentle on fine knives.
