    I think her question came in two parts--darn that old ENTER key! I believe she wants directions to a wood counter top.

      About 2 weeks ago, there was an awesome vidio/regarding of butcherblock countertop on Hometalk.
      My friend had an aweful leak in her kitchen, this last week. It resulted in tearing up her existing countertop/kitchen.
      Being retired would a great expence.
      A repeat of that article would help to put her once beautiful kitchen back in order.
      Please show me how to find it.

    We rent and have Butcher block counter tops. They're really pretty, but between my husband, myself and three teenage boys who seem always to be cooking/eating something--and I'm the only one who seems to know how to clean up a mess--they're kind of a pain. They need to be oiled at least once a month, and you need to be careful about putting hot pans on them. (Hubby accidentally "branded" the counter when he pulled a hot cast iron wok off the stove and put it on the counter. ) 😮

    If I were building or remodeling my own kitchen I'd choose something else--but that's my personal opinion.

      Not a big deal. Who hasn't burned or left a mark from hot pans. For me it was the kitchen table. It was getting scratched up anyway and needs to be refinished or painted...or donated! Lol.
