Butcher Block countertop: should we buy or make?
We have an island in our kitchen and want to replace the countertop material with butcher block. We have looked at the local hardware stores (Lowe's, Home Depot) and they don't have anything for us to purchase. We may check out Ikea this weekend to see if we can find anything that will work. Do you have an idea of where we could purchase a butcher block countertop without breaking the bank? I'm sure we could have one custom-made, but it doesn't fit in the small budget we have set aside for this project.
Or do you have experience in making a butcher block countertop? Please share! It seems doable, but like a ton of work, which I would like to avoid if possible.
