Wood countertops with juice grooves are a feature that is often requested for counters used for direct chopping. The juice grooves collect the moisture from fruits, meats and vegetables and avoid drips onto the floor. They are most commonly a feature adding to smaller wood countertops that flank both sizes of the stove. Counters with juice grooves are sealed with food grade mineral oil that is hypoallergenic and so safe you can drink it. Our wood countertops with juice grooves ship in two to three weeks and arrive with a lifetime warranty.
Designing wood countertops with juice grooves can be as simple or complex as you desire. The walnut edge grain wood countertop shown on the right is a very simple and classic design. The groove is a single line that encompasses the rectangular shape of the countertop. The Maple wood cutting board shown above has a more complex design. The juice groove is carved into a tree shape. The juices will collect in the well at the base of the tree. The design is functional and decorative as well. The most popular edge profiles are simple eased or roundover edge profiles. In contrast, adding a juice groove to a more complex edge detail results in a very beautiful and functional piece. The striped edge grain wood countertop on the lower left has an ornate edge detail that is accentuated with the integrated juice grove.
