Aspects of grain to consider when selecting a wooden countertop:

Face Grain


Face grain countertops show off the wood's beauty and are great for a decorative countertop. They are constructed using the width of the board and the top of the grain shows the natural swirls and ovals of the wood pattern. We only use full-length boards. These wood countertops are more likely to be used for islands as it's not suited for chopping or cutting. It does, however, provide a beautiful, elegant look to any kitchen island or any other wood countertop that isn't used for a chopping surface.

Edge Grain


Edge grain wood countertops are usually constructed using strips of wood cut from wider boards which are then arranged on edge and then joined together. Straight grain lines will be noticeable along the length of the wood. After its construction, edge grain makes a fantastic hard and stable surface for countertops and kitchen islands.
