Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Butcher block is a style of assembled wood (often sugar maple, teak, or walnut) used as heavy duty chopping blocks, table tops, and cutting boards. It was commonly used in butcher shops and meat processing plants but has now become popular in home use. It is made in two basic styles: End grain, Edge grain, This type of butcher block is made by gluing pieces of wood with the wood fiber perpendicular to the surface. Most commercial butcher blocks have a thickness greater than four inches. This produces an extremely tough, durable surface capable of withstanding repeated blows from large, heavy meat cleavers. Its thickness also allows it to be resurfaced many times without wearing away an appreciable percentage of the total thickness.
