Maple butcher block owners - love it or hate it??
I am looking for advice from those who have wood counter tops. I love the look, but everyone warns me against the upkeep. We are looking at maple butcher block for our island, which will have a sink and dishwasher in it. I've searched through the archives and can't find a thread discussing this topic - would love any advice on the reality of the upkeep. I have 2 little kids, and tend to bang around in the kitchen. I have no desire for something that stays pristine, but I don't want to have to worry about it warping or cracking either.
