Comments about Williamsburg Butcher Block Co. 1 1/2" x25" x 8 lft Maple Butcher Block Countertop:

I read poor reviews about this product having other wood species and bad voids hidden in the laminations, I installed it and cut around a farm sink and sectioned it in 3 places and found the product to be well made with good integrity wherever it was cut. Excellent value for the price. Customer loved it.

        Comments about Williamsburg Butcher Block Co. 1 1/2" x25" x 8 lft Maple Butcher Block Countertop:

        We bought this countertop hoping to save a few dollars compared to a more premium product. If you're looking for a nice butcher block to use in your kitchen, here are a few points to consider about this particular option:

        -The individual rails are about 3/4". This is by far narrower than any other block I have looked at. Grab a tape measure and really visualize if this is a look that you're good with. Some may be fine with this, I wasn't.

        - The butt joints are not flush on all four sides. What this means, is that if you have a butt joint on the front rail of your countertop, the line where the two pieces of wood meet looks like a chair.

        Other than the two points above, it's about what I was expecting. The logo for Williamsburg Butcher Block Company is branded - badly - on the front profile of one of the corners. As long as you can cut that bit off, or put it towards the wall, that should be ok.

        We opted to return this and go with something else.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The butcher block came in faster than expected. I got a prompt call from the store, and it was easy to schedule a pickup.

        When I arrived, it was obvious the box had been damaged in shipping. The store manager assured me that everything would be fine, and I could bring it back if I wanted.

        After opening the box at home, and discovering the countertop was damaged, I returned it within a few days with no problems.

                Counter top is decent but was disappointed to find that there were spot on the countertop where joints were filled with putty and a bit sloppy. Hard to believe somehting that is food grade (chopping block) has wood putty to fill cracks rather that better construction... Next time will build my own or pay for something better. Cant even imagainge what the builders grade is like being its cheaper.

                  This would have been better if the back side of the board had gaps filled and plugged like the top side. I made one small error on the top side during installation and would have been able to correct it by turning the board over.

                  Butcher block is beautiful, but we were sad to open it up and find damage on both sides. Someone had attempted to fix it with wood filer, but they did not even bother to sand it after doing so. It was still tacky to the touch where they tried to fix it. My husband was able to make it look much better, but that is not what you expect with a brand new counter.

                    Comments about Williamsburg Butcher Block Co. 1 1/2" x25" x 8 lft Maple Butcher Block Countertop:

                    I had to purchase this in lieu of the IKEA ones because of availability. I was dubious as to the quality and I am so thrilled. First, I am reviewing the AMERICAN made butcher block countertop, which is slightly more expensive. Very lovely, looks great on the use side, minimal glued seams showing on the bottom side (which as a countertop you don't see. My contractor told me that these are thicker than the IKEA ones, so even though I spent a bit more, I got more depth and due to the fact that they are longer, I was able to get TWO huge butcher block cutting boards when we were done. The two pieces I purchased, one 12ft. long and one 8ft. long created one large L shaped counter and one large counter/bar seating on the other side. They look gorgeous. We let them acclimate to the space for several days, then oiled them 3 times with mineral oil.
                    The customer service was fantastic, they helped me from the phone staff to the store staff. I will be shopping here as often as I can. I'm going back for a butcher block board for my mother. And delivery was perfect, coming when we needed it due to the great store staff who made it happen.

                    This butcher block countertop is not of high enough quality to go into a nice kitchen. I installed in a laundry room so not so bad. There was an imperfection on one side which made that side unusable. The other side had several voids that were very poorly filled with putty. One end was not cut square and had to be recut.

                    • Q:

                      It was mentioned in another answer that this is not a single solid piece of maple. Does that mean that an exposed cut end will not look the similar an end that hasn't been cut? In other words, I know it's possible to put in an undermount sink or cut to fit an island, but I'm wondering if the edges will look different than the uncut edges as it is out of the box (are the edges before it is cut concealing something different on the inside).
                      Thank you.

                        Our sizes are as stated on the product page only, however two sections can be joined together.


                        1) For a good glue edge bond; using a straight edge guide and saw recut 1/2"or so off one side of each.

                        2) For center support and strength; Use a biscuit jointer or doweling jig, then wood glue the edges and bar-clamp until dry, re-sand. Add a beam to the counter to help support the seam joint.
