This was a countertop for a client in rental housing. We saved the old countertop, so that when he moves out he can take this one and “trim it up” as a free floating cutting board.

I have not used elm. I heard it was prone to warping. Have you had much experience with it?

Hi Kansas,

Once properly cured and dried, our local Siberian Elm seems to stay put. I mill and cure myself, one tree at a time. So far, my customers seem happy with it, and it does not warp any more often than other local woods (maple, walnut, olive, locust). It is plentiful out here, and I find it to be quite durable and pretty. Regards,

Kevin

Nice grain! I have only used European Elm, with now problems. Is Siberiam Elm plentiful in your area, I have never seen it for sale hear in New England.
