Example island pictured is genuine butcher block construction from locally-harvested ambrosia maple, 80" x 39" x 3" thick with a unique shape and overhang supported by embedded custom steel. This one resides in California.
Built as an active working/food prep surface to endure many decades of hard use, only end grain is self-healing, relatively non-scarring, and gentle on your good knives.
Please note: longer-than-standard turnaround may apply for larger items. I am typically booked a minimum of 3 months in advance, with deposit.
