Kensington Wood Countertops | Construction Styles

Kensington Wood is available in all three construction styles: flat grain, edge grain, and end grain. The type of construction style should be chosen based on your desired use. Flat grain construction is generally preferred for an aesthetic furniture surface that enhances the grain of the wood. Edge grain construction is very stable and makes a great surface for counters. End grain construction is the premium construction style for direct food preparation.
