Cherry Ikea Butcher Block Countertop

Cherry Ikea Butcher Block Countertop.

Instead of using a different material for the board, these owners have expanded the butcher block on the wall to create a board. To protect butcher-block counters, cut meat, poultry and fish on top of a cutting board, not directly on the countertop for sanitary reasons. Apply sealants, such as polyurethane varnishes or, in areas near the drains with excessive exposure to water, but only if you do not plan any type of food preparation in that area.
