Oak is a traditional butcher block wood choice due to its durability, hardness, warmth and beautiful grain pattern. We offer red oak, white oak, and reclaimed oak butcher block, each offering a unique color and character. We offer only the highest quality reclaimed woods which are meticulously inspected and free of pests and mold. Oak is a great choice for staining as it takes color very well. Stained oak is great as a more economical alternative to naturally dark woods like walnut or mahogany.
