Why Wood?

Solid wood countertops bring incredible presence and balance to any space. All of our custom wood countertops are completely hand sanded, then protected and finished with Waterlox® tung oil to create a lasting, lustrous and food-prep safe surface.

Wood countertops are also an exceptional, eco-friendly selection. Not only do we use these materials to add character and durability to your home, but we also feel a responsibility to minimize our impact on the environment.

Discover why so many designers and homeowners are choosing the beauty and durability of natural wood countertops for kitchens, islands and bars.

Kirkwood Stair Craftsmanship

We minimize wet area related issues near sinks due to the way we construct and seal our solid wood countertops. Depending on the finish selected, water spots and rings from glasses can be virtually eliminated. We choose a seal that is extremely durable and water resistant. Therefore, you can say goodbye to glassware rings that typically haunt wood covered areas. Although there are various types of sealants you can choose from, our professionals will advise you and offer cleaning tips specific to your choice.

Wood Countertop Maintenance

If a spill occurs, try to blot up the liquid immediately. Then, using a soft cloth and warm water, wipe down the surface of your wood kitchen countertop on a daily basis. You may also combine a mild dishwashing soap with the water. Rinse your countertop thoroughly followed by a clean, dry, soft cloth. We want to set you up to fully enjoy your new top for years to come. If you have questions about additional maintenance, our team would be happy to discuss safe options for cleaning and maintaining your surfaces.
