I’ve been waiting for a stain sample of butcher block for the new kitchen counters at the Squash House for quite some time! The builder thought he had ordered them back in October, but they never arrived. So I called before Christmas and placed another order. And because of the weather, the holidays and whatever else, they were delayed - until now! Can you see me skipping about? Here is what they sent:
We are using a company called Grothouse Lumber in Pennsylvania. I first saw their work on an episode of This Old House and later in This Old House magazine. I’ve always had an affinity for wood - my Lithuanian grandfather among other things was a woodworker. (You could even call me a tree-hugger in the literal sense - LOL) I think beautiful wood runs through my veins! I asked for samples of their honey colored stains. See the heart? That is the color I’ve picked.
