Our Custom Wood Countertops Blog features the industry’s most talented and innovative designers throughout the United States and abroad. This featured kitchen includes a Peruvian Walnut Countertop designed by Kristin Kleban, Senior Designer, and Bruce Roth, Owner, of Sycamore Kitchens & More.
About the Designers: A collaborative effort was used to create this striking custom 1 3/4″ Peruvian Walnut edge grain countertop. It was designed by Kristin Kleban, Senior Designer, and Bruce Roth, Owner of Sycamore Kitchens & More. The client wanted the softness and wow factor of wood in her beautiful new kitchen crafted by Sycamore Kitchens & More. Kristin has been designing beautiful kitchens for over 20 years and Bruce was instrumental in actually coordinating the look and managing the fabrication.
A Tip from Bruce & Kristin: If abutting another material such as granite, make the wood top 1/4″ thicker so you can overlap the edge of the granite so no crumbs fall into a “seam” between the two materials!

Other Items, Comments, or Advice: Make sure you can fit jumbo wood counter tops into the home! This one was so large it had to be made in 2 pieces and seamed in the middle. The guys did a great job- you can’t even see the seam!
