Grothouse continues to revolutionize their solid wood surfaces by offering Hand Planed Wood Countertops. Hand Planed wood surfaces look heavily distressed to mimic the elemental wear of the wood that is seen over time. The process in hand planed artistry is done very carefully to assure that the wear does not look “purposeful” or “factory made”.

Any countertop wood species can be hand planed. The recommended construction styles for hand planed countertops is Flat Grain and Edge Grain. Careful communication and an exchange of samples between Grothouse and the client is done to assure the desired result.
