Nothing matches the warmth and beauty of natural wood countertops. Although butcher block wood is common, wide wood planks and natural live edge wood counters have become popular. It is easy to understand why, with their rich color tones, knots, and complex wood grain patterns. Along with our live edge counters, we assist DIY woodworkers in sourcing quality material and a few trade tips, such as filling checks or voids and finishing options. Services such as surfacing and cutting are also available.
Natural wood countertops
Butcher block counters feature strips of wood fabricated together, making a solid, hard surface. This style is also available in end grain and wide plank, the most durable being the end grain butcher block countertops. They are also the most expensive. Simultaneously, wood species like maple, walnut, cherry, hickory, and beech are common choices in your local lumberyard in various sizes. A butcher block or wide plank counter typically costs $75 to $300 per square foot. On the other hand, end grain is double the price. With live-edge countertops, the cost ranges from $95 to $500 per square foot.
Live edge countertop
We specialize in natural wood counters built from live edge wood slabs. We also harvest our live edge wood slabs from dead-standing trees and root systems on the forest floor. While our wood is from the Pacific Northwest, we also source material locally. We offer maple, black walnut, redwood, elm, claro walnut, western juniper, and other incidental trees. We look forward to working with you. A simple email or call our Nashville, Tennessee studio at 615-878-6216.

We use a waterproof hand-rubbed finish that becomes part of the wood and expands and contracts with the wood. Thus making it easy to clean and repair if needed. The finish will repel wine, water, soda, and more with proper care. However, we suggest wiping up spills with a damp towel. Also, you cannot place hot pans or dishes directly on the wood as this can cause damage. Additionally, use the wash and wax care products we suggest, as they will keep your pieces looking great for many years. Rest assured, if a mishap happens, it can be easily repaired.
