After being pushed aside for years by showy stones like granite and marble and maintenance-free engineered materials like quartz and solid surfacing, natural-wood countertops are enjoying a real revival. Recently delivered to a new home construction, this island countertop offers all the one of a kind unique qualities of granite or marble. It has similar lines and movement with color variations of natural stones. In addition it is also a cure for the cold of common stainless steel. Visually rich and warm to the touch, these natural beauties are making a comeback
Salt Creek Creations crafted this 58” square island out of two 3” thick pecan slabs milled by Pepper Creek Creations. Sourced from the San Saba area this island top will provide a welcome textural contrast and a furniture-like finish to a new home in rural Texas.
Increasingly, homeowners and interior designers seek and appreciate natural wood countertops custom-created by quality craftsmen. They provide a warm, organic landing surface in a kitchen, one that is wonderfully forgiving, gentle on dishware, and able to absorb the noise of a busy household. Our variety of woods available is impressive, from subtly grained maple to deep, rich pecan to dramatic mesquite.
While wood countertops can add warmth, balance and beauty to any modern home, they also require a fair amount of attention. Because wood is susceptible to damage from heat and moisture, it must be sealed on a regular basis. The best part about wood, though, is that it can be refinished in the event that damage does occur.
Wood countertops are green. All of our wood is sourced from trees that needed to be removed from urban environments because of death, disease, damage from storms or insects, new construction or other hazards. Urban logging makes the best use of trees by reclaiming them and making them available for your heirloom projects. And while wood counters last for years, once worn out, they can be recycled.
