Favorite Wood Countertops

Our custom wood countertops come from many species and sources, so here’s one type: New Black Walnut. This wood, sustainably harvested in the Northeast, offers really beautiful sapwood and heartwood dynamics.

Best in wood countertops!

For 15 years, we have customized for some of Connecticut’s finest homes, businesses and kitchen designers. We offer many options, some from the biggest US reclaimed wood selection.

Reclaimed wood countertops

Our reclaimed wood can be centuries old and stronger than new lumber. Two great Old Growth woods that customers love are our Heart Pine and American Chestnut.

Bar Tops and Kitchen Tops

This Heart Pine bar top shows off its warm glow and grain dynamics. Next, we milled our rare chestnut wood to create a fixed table island. Historic wood like this won’t grow again.

Places for people to gather

In the past, people met under trees and by wells to share news and views. Today, bar and restaurant designers attract people with wood’s beauty…and liquids. They’re classic elements for reflection, sharing & enjoyment.

Rare, reclaimed chestnut bars 

The New Park Brewery and Butchers & Bakers are hospitality clients that chose chestnut. This wood looks great and tells a good story- just in the grain and colors.

Oaks – Red, White & French

We sell new and reclaimed red or white oak. This split L-top is reclaimed white oak, a gorgeous, intricate choice from old barn timbers. Red Oak is very close to White Oak in color and grain. 

French Oak from…France.

From France’s famous sustainable forests (est. 1620). This fine grained, stained French oak table offers subtle grain figuring.  (We have red wine cask oak and mushroom wood, too).
