Grothouse Butcher Block Kitchen Island Tops add a very welcoming and inviting feel to any style kitchen. Their beautiful appearance instantly pleases everyone’s sense of sight. Each butcher block is carefully hand sanded to a silky, smooth finish; making them tactile and warm to the touch.

The thermal diffusion of wood is much lower than that of other materials, such as steel, concrete, and stone. For this reason, wood does not feel extremely hot or cold to the touch as do some other materials. This is the main reason why Grothouse Butcher Block Kitchen Island Tops are inviting surfaces to sit at. Because of this, Butcher Block Islands become the center piece of the kitchen. They are also safe to use with sinks and stoves when installed properly. The Butcher Block Kitchen Island Top shown below includes an over mount Kohler sink. This kitchen was designed by Plain & Fancy.
