FAQ Standard Plank Countertops

How are the boards selected for your Standard Plank countertops?

We select boards from 3-5 inches in width and look for the longest boards with the highest quality. We make every effort to use boards with similar grain patterns and color tones. The boards may include sapwood, which adds more dimension to the color variation of the wood.

Are Standard Plank countertops safe to cut on?

In order to protect the finish and to avoid cut-marks, we recommend the use of a cutting board.

Can hot pots and pans be placed directly on the surface of a Standard Plank countertop?

In order to protect the finish, we recommend the use of trivets.

Can an undermount sink be placed into a Standard Plank countertop?

Yes, you can certainly include a sink in your Standard Plank countertops. Standard Plank countertops are a good choice for a sink because they are water-resistant.

Are color or stain options available for Standard Plank countertops?

We do not offer stain options for Standard Plank countertops.

Is it possible to have a built-up edge for my countertop?

Yes, we can do a built-up edge. When possible, we prefer to build full thickness tops to ensure the stability of the top; it’s also more cost effective since it is labor intensive to build up the edge. Some exotic wood species are not available thicker than 1 ½” so a built up edge is a perfect solution to give the appearance of a thicker top.

I’m interested in a wood species that you don’t list on your website, can you get it?

We stock our most frequently requested woods but we can place custom orders for most wood species. Call us to discuss your options.

Do you offer green countertop options?

Repurposed woods such as Antique Heart Pine and Antique Chestnut are collected from fine, aged homes and barns. Fast-growth woods such as Lyptus and Bamboo are an excellent green alternative. See our Green Statement for more information.

Are Standard Plank countertops stain proof or waterproof?

Our Standard Plank tops include a Waterlox finish, they are water and stain resistant.

Do Standard Plank countertops require a lot of maintenance?

Our Standard Plank countertops require minimal maintenance. We recommend recoating the tops with Waterlox brand wood finish every 1-2 years or when the finish appears aged or dull.

What is the turnaround time for your Standard Plank countertops?

Wood countertops generally take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete from the time we receive approved shop drawings.
