How to make custom butcher block counter?

Becky at Flipping the FlipLindsay AratariHolly Lengner - Lost Mom


What kinds of wood are best for making butcher block counters? We are building our own home. We have lots of scraps lumber and had some hickory milled from a large tree downed for construction. Other than "treated" lumber, is there any kind of wood that is NOT suitable for making countertops, whether for structural or food safety issues?
