Here are pictures of the countertop installed, it is absolutely beautiful.
I just wanted to say thank you and share a few pics of the beautiful butcher block you created for us! We love it! It was supposed to be all about the function but it has become a masterful design feature!
I think it garners most of the compliments in our new kitchen! It was a pleasure working with your people from start to finish!
Paul, Thank you for the great work! This is my first job (albeit small) with you and I look forward to more.
Devin- My husband told me that you left a voicemail to check that everything was OK with the top. Everything worked great. The top arrived via ground shipping, which was so much easier for us since we could have them hold it and we just picked it up locally. The crate protected the top perfectly. We were able to install it pretty easily and it fit perfectly. The hardest part was probably getting it out of the crate. It is just the right height for me to work on and is a great addition to the kitchen and solution to our problem. I’ve attached a picture of it in place. Thanks for all the work making sure it fit.
It’s been a little over a year now since we purchased our countertop from your wonderful company and we just wanted to say thank you so much for assisting us with the purchase. We love it and so do the people that visit our house.Learn more about this project
Hello Scott, I wanted up send an image of the butcher block table top you made for me. I really cannot thank you enough and want you to know how pleased I am with the work and the final result. I will definitely refer your services in the future!Learn more about this project
Paul, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your expert production, on-time delivery, and beautiful product. John and I are extremely happy with the countertop, which will always be enjoyed as an integral and most attractive part of our kitchen.
Paul… so sorry it’s taken so long to get photos to you, but we just finished moving into the new addition a week or so ago. Of course, we’re still shopping for a toilet and a few other incidentals. These two shots are for your “scrapbook.” The juice drain was a great idea. We’ve already catered a wedding reception for 100 people and I don’t know how we managed before. Having this cutting board butcher block countertop to work on is beyond “happy.” Another satisfied customer.Learn more about this project

Paul, although it’s been a little over a year since we did business with you, I just wanted to say thanks again for the incredible butcher block countertop you built for our new kitchen island. It is the perfect combination of beauty and function – we get lots of compliments from friends who visit. Attached are a couple of pictures of our kitchen with the island and your top.
Thanks for sending out the “This Old House” notice, we are looking forward to watching. Wishing you a happy and relaxing Thanksgiving!
Dear Paul, Some of the unedited pictures from our apartment – it seems that the kitchen will make it to the cover of this local magazine (April issue). You can clearly see your butcher block tops and the cutting board prominently displayed!!!
Dear Denise, Here is a photo of the soon to be famous butcher block countertop in its new home. Thank you, Annette
This butcher block was in production when Norm Abram of This Old House filmed a tour of our factory, so this butcher block became famous for its “cameo” appearance on This Old House™ Television Show.
Paul, Chad –
Attached are some additional pictures of the Island Countertop, a little more “lived in” with the 2 new Cherry End Grain Butcher Blocks. Looks great. More important, great function.
Dear Paul –
Please forgive the lengthy delay in our sending you our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the absolutely beautiful job you did in creating our maple countertop for the kitchen island. To say we are thrilled with it in every degree is an understatement! It is the centerpiece of the kitchen and dining room and is a magnet to people in the house, instantly becoming the gathering-place for everyone. (In fact, at a recent party in which we had close to 50 guests, so many clustered around the island that we STILL had the familiar everybody’s-in-the-kitchen issue, even with the rest of the great room wide open to all!) It is also, along with the granite fireplace, the feature that gets the most notice and comment from everyone who comes in: everyone wants to know who made it. We can’t thank you enough, or fully express our delight and gratitude that we have your beautiful workmanship at the heart of our new home. A couple of attached photos will show you how gorgeous the countertop looks, and how well it functions with company.
Thanks a million, Bonnie & Mal
We absolutely love our new Butler’s Pantry with its butcher block countertop and are now proudly preparing meals with all the room and conveniences that we never thought possible. To provide you with some perspective, this area used to be the laundry room (between the kitchen and the garage). By removing the interior door and opening up that passageway, we gained additional needed kitchen space and new cabinets (storage) to boot! The reaction of all those coming to see our new addition is incredible.
Even our cabinet maker was speechless when he first saw your butcher block countertop. I get the feeling your products are unparalleled in the industry. How lucky are we? Thanks again for a superb experience and an incredible countertop!
Hi Denise, Finally!! I’m attaching a photo of your butcher block top in our kitchen Thanks again for a great piece and such wonderful service!
Hi Denise – well our butcher block arrived and is installed and I have to say we are blown away by how fantastic it looks!! I enclosed a photo of the finished island. One question – what oil do I use on the countertop? Do you sell any, if so how much to have some shipped to me?
Thank you so much for your help and you and your company are a pleasure to deal with… I will recommend you to everyone I know and the next time we renovate a kitchen, we will always include a countertop from you!!
Dear Grothouse Lumber,
First, I want to THANK YOU for the beautiful butcherblock counter that you folks made for me! I’m delighted with it!
The top arrived in perfect condition. Kathy & I will be proud of this piece in our kitchen forever. It was even nicer than I could have imagined. Pass on our thanks to everyone involved in making this beautiful top to our Kitchen Island.
Paul-just wanted to let you know we really liked our checkerboard butcher block top… thanks!
Table looks / works great! Thanks for meeting the deadline!
The butcher block countertop was received safe and sound and it is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for such a quality job – it’s truly amazing and just what I was hoping for. Mahalo nui loa.
Just wanted to write and say the new butcher block countertop is beautiful! We absolutely love it! When we get the rest of the kitchen finished up we’ll make sure to send you pictures. Thanks
We installed our new natural butcher block countertop on our cooktop island and it is just beautiful. Your craftsmanship and expertise is superb and we couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. Although skeptical at first to buy something like this from a website, your constant communications via email and telephone by Denise and yourself kept us informed of the progress and gave us a secure feeling that it would be exactly what we had expected. The delivery was on time and your courier was a pleasure to have into our home. When my contractor dropped the Viking cooktop and the downdraft assembly into the counter top, we were all pleasantly surprised that the fit was perfect and no adjustments were necessary. I have included a photo of the finished product! Thanks again for the fine craftsmanship and feel free to have any future customer call us for a reference. G Lumber is the best!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the beyond-beautiful counters and island butcher block countertop. Your work is superior. It is my very favorite part of the kitchen, and it changes in its beauty every single day. The other day I chopped something at a friend’s house and had to use a cutting board!! It felt like torture. Which brings me to my question. After a year of kitchen remodel, we are relocating to Alabama. I truly cannot live without my butcher block top island. I know your company can build another top but can you build the bottom portion of the island as well? I would really like a long island with simple legs, even stainless steel but where I’d find stainless steel legs is another question. Let me know if this type of job is within your realm of craftsmanship. I am attaching separately photos of our kitchen with walnut and butcher block tops. Thought they would be helpful for your portfolio. Thanks again and look forward to your response.
Just wanted to let you know that we received our Lyptus butcher block countertop today and it is stunning!!! Thank you so much. You do beautiful work!
We received our block yesterday afternoon. It looks fantastic!! Thanks so much. It was an absolute perfect fit and exactly what I wanted. You couldn’t have done a better job!!
Larry and I just wanted to confirm that we have received our butcher block counter. We wanted to tell you there is one big problem with it —– IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL, WE DON’T WANT TO CUT ANYTHING ON IT!!!!!!! Thanks for your beautiful work and your professionalism and prompt finished product!!!
Dear Wonderful Butcher block Creators! I finally was able to travel to Colorado and see my new butcher block counter top for my island—it is gorgeous! Everyone who sees it, down to the scruffiest-not-given-to-complements tradesman, can’t resist touching it and commenting upon never having seen one like it. You were by far the best of the scores of contractors, sub-contractors, vendors that we worked with in completing our French Country home. Opening of mines and oil fields in our area siphoned off a number of workers from our trades and put our house completion six months behind. You were so responsive and gracious to our inquiries that we had complete confidence in the quality and timeliness of our order. You and your product was exactly what you promised. Thank you very much and good luck to and your future in beautifying homes.
I must say I am a bit overwhelmed at how beautiful my butcher block countertop is. I don’t even want to cut on it is so beautiful. I am speechless and that is new for me! Thank you so much for such a wonderful piece of craftsmanship. I hope the entire staff has a great New Years. I now have to think of something else for you to build – this is too much fun!
