It all starts with choosing the right wood, and finishing it to perfection. The Walnut Butcher Block Countertop features the heartwood of the Walnut tree, with deep, rich colors and only a hint of the younger, lighter sapwood. We hand select this Black Walnut lumber, and custom arrange it to create a beautiful and elegant countertop that will be a perfect centerpiece to show off in your kitchen. Our countertops are made from full length strips of hardwood, which show off the wood’s beautiful continuous grain throughout the length of the countertop, and don’t rely on short pieces or blended style tops.

Our small shop takes the time and care necessary to make your butcher block countertop not only beautiful, but functional as well. All of our products are custom made to order, and can be adapted in many ways to your desired specifications. For instance, we condition our countertops with Mineral Oil and Organic Beeswax finish to make them food safe, so that you can prepare food on them with peace of mind. We also have Monocoat and Everlast Satin Varnish finishing options to choose from as well, depending on the exact specifications for your home.

Plus, the edge grain Walnut kitchen island top makes it extra durable for chopping, making food prep a breeze. Whether you are looking to make a kitchen island, tabletop, or countertop that pop, this Walnut Butcher Block Countertop will do exactly what you need.

Apart from the natural quality and functionality of this countertop, you can also count on its durability and longevity. We build products to last a lifetime, with only the best quality kiln dried hardwood we can find, and put it all together in our shop in Denver, Colorado.

I would recommend Armani Fine Woodworking for similar projects and products. My customer was very satisfied with the butcher block. It arrived on time and was built to the specifications my customer desired.

Walnut Butcher Block

Written by Mark S on May 29, 2015

Walnut Butcher Block It's not often you make such a large customized purchase on the internet from a location that's nearly 1500 miles away. However, after speaking with Joe on the phone a few times I felt more than comfortable and placed my order. Joe was extremely informative answering my many questions and discussing measurements. I was eager to receive the piece and Joe had it out ahead of schedule. The block we ordered is 38" X 74" X 2" and is absolutely stunning to look at. The wood grain is naturally brought out by the quality work that Joe and his team create in their workshop. It's a centerpiece in the kitchen and every visitor can't help but immediately go up and touch it. The shipping crate is very heavy and protective. It's a necessary evil that makes certain the block is protected during shipping. Depending on the size you will definitely need two people to unpackage and move into position. Design note: most stone counter-tops such as granite and marble are made in 3cm thickness. 3cm is about 1 3/16 inches. If you really want to set off your butcher block counter/island splurge for the 2" or thicker block. The contrasting size makes for an impressive appearance. Thanks for an amazing purchasing experience and product Joe! All the best, Mark S. in NJ

Walnut Countertops

Written by Carlos and Lynda on May 07, 2015

After watching hundreds of "Property Brothers" shows on HGTV, my wife Lynda and I decided to buy a fixer-upper and do our own remodel (we must have been locos!?). We knew we wanted our kitchen to incorporate different textures and materials and had decided that we wanted a butcher block counter top for the kitchen island. We researched and researched and researched and the only places we found in Texas that could deliver a high quality product required us to cash in our 401Ks to be able to do it. We were about to give up, when something amazing happened; we found Joe Armani. And even though Joe's shop was out of State and we were leery at first, we took a leap of faith and decided to go for it (How could such gorgeous product(s) be so reasonably priced? Shipping included! It had to be a scam, we thought....) At first we had Joe help us put together and design a custom Walnut counter top 120 x 26 x 1 1/2 for the island. He was very helpful from the get go and was there to answer all our emails and questions. The product was amazing! Immediately thereafter, we placed a second order for another custom made counter top for our bar. This second project was a little more involved, but Joe was there to help every step of the way. In fact, Joe would not make the cuts on this second piece until I'd gone back and take measurements a first, second, third, fourth and fifth time. By the way, mounting and installing the counter tops was not difficult at all. The second piece was just as stunning as the first piece! Now, our neighbors, want my wife and I to come over their homes and help them re-design their kitchens. We are super happy with the way everything turned out. Just be aware that Joe ships his "masterpieces" in crates and these crates can be very, very heavy. You will need help loading up the crates onto your truck or trailer, unless the delivery is made straight to your home (I learned my lesson after having them delivered to my office). Once the crates are emptied, two adults can easily install the counter tops. Sign us, Very, very happy in Brownsville, Texas. Lynda and Carlos.

Amazing custom order

Written by Holly on Oct 17, 2014

We custom ordered an edge grain walnut butcher block top for our island. We requested lots of character pieces and our wants were taken into account. The end result is truly stunning and exceeds our expectations! And the quick turn around from order date to receiving it (10 days) was awesome.

Armani Fine Woodworking is just that... very fine wood products! My husband and I needed a custom sized butcher block top and I'm so glad we found Armani Fine Woodworking. Joe was easy to work with, and very responsive. Despite the long shipping distance, he offered affordable suggestions to get our GORGEOUS walnut butcher block-top to us in a quick and affordable fashion. Thank you for providing such excellent service, and having a way to get out block top to Alaska without it costing an arm and a leg! And more than anything THANK YOU for sending a block-top that is truly a beautiful and stunning piece of woodwork. It's simply perfect!! Best wishes - Heather and Matt, Anchorage, Alaska
