Topic tags/keywords: maple workbench butcher block

I’m trying to locate where I can purchase a nice Maple butcher block Top. I only know of two places Grizzly and an online company called the Perfect Plank. Grizzly doesn’t really carry the size I’m looking for, 36” x 30”. I located the perfect plank via an internet search so I don’t know anything about them. I heard of the Michigan Maple butcher block company but the closes size would be 36 X 48.

I was wondering for the people that have purchased their maple tops, what places would you recommend?

John Boos has a large selection of butcher blocks. I didn’t see an option for your exact size, though (I didn’t poke around too long, though!). Perhaps they do custom sizes.

Failing that, you could contact a local woodworker or make one yourself.

I checked out Butcher Block and they look great and have my size but I can’t spend $550. Also I already looked at but their smallest size is 48”. I didn’t IKEA sold them. I’ll check them out but I’m looking for 36” X 30”; 27” might work. I’ll also check out woodcraft. Do you know who makes them for Woodcraft?

I noticed Home Depot is selling them now. I have NOT looked at these closely, cannot comment on the quality.

I bought one 20+ years ago at Lowes or Home Depot. The thing has been used repeatedly and chronically abused for 2 decades. It still looks good.

I would/have looked on craigslist for butcherblock or shuffleboards. Sometimes you can pick up a ol shuffleboard with a 1.75” to 3” laminated maple top for cheap cheap…...AND its fantastic quality.
