When it comes to choosing the right wood countertop for your kitchen, why settle for anything but the best? Hard Maple has long been the gold standard of durability and performance for top chefs and aspiring chefs alike with demanding food prep needs. With its hardness and tight grain structure, the Hard Maple Butcher Block Countertop from Armani Fine Woodworking may be the ideal wood choice for ultimate quality and reliability for many different types of food preparation tasks.
The making of your high-quality kitchen island countertop begins at the source. We start by hand selecting the finest Hard White Maple, carefully sourced only from Michigan's Upper Peninsula for consistent beauty, grain structure, and integrity. Hard Maple grows best in this region and is generally preferred to the more Yellow colored Hard Maple of the Appalachian Region. You can trust that our Hard Maple Butcher Block Countertop features premium grade, sustainably sourced wood from U.P. Michigan.
The beautiful look and feel offered by Hard Maple is taken to the next level in our shop. We almost entirely filter our the dark brown heartwood in the Hard Maple for a very attractive look with similar tones throughout, while maintaining some variation in the Hard Maple’s exquisite wood as pictured. Unlike many others, our countertops are made from full length strips of hardwood. These are not short pieces or blended style tops. In this way, we showcase the gorgeous continuous grain throughout the length of the countertop. We custom arrange it to create a beautiful and elegant countertop that will be a perfect centerpiece to show off in your kitchen.
Our small shop takes the time and care necessary to make your handmade butcher block countertop not only remarkable to look at, but also highly practical, and to the specifications of each and every one of our customers. All of our products are custom made to order, and can be adapted in many ways to your needs.
