Excerpt from Butcher Block Countertops - How to Build a Butcher Block Top :
How to Build a Butcher Block Top. You shouldn't cut on butcher block countertops with this finish because cutting will remove the protection, leaving the wood exposed to water and other household liquids. It is extremely difficult to fix cuts in this finish so that you won't notice them. However, if you're not cutting on this finish, the advantage is that it is virtually carefree. It's waterproof, so you can have a sink cut out in it. And you can spill grape juice of red wine on it, wipe it away, and not have a stain.
How to Build a Butcher Block Top. Cherry and walnut are softer than hard maple but very pretty and more expensive. Red oak is a very rough and grainy option but is one of the least expensive choices for wood countertops. It might appear that some companies are practically giving away their butcher block countertops. This is because they finger joint random scraps of whatever wood they have and call it a butcher block. Mixed finger-jointed woods can have serious issues in time and you should stay away from them. So don't be like most people who just look at the price.
