Hi El,

We have built hundreds of butcher blocks. The most common material is maple, followed by walnut, then cherry. Bamboo is popular because it’s considered green and we have done teak as well.

Most of what we build are decorative but when we know they are going to be used for cutting we typically make them from maple and also use a product called Good Stuff for the finish. It is food safe.
