Are Edge Grain & Plank the Same thing other than width?
I'm choosing a butcher block counter top in Walnut that will be oiled. Still not sure if I'm cutting on it or not. I like the look of my Boos Edge Grain Board. They boards are 2" wide although Boos tells me theirs are usually around 1.75" wide.
Boos told me that Edge and Plank are the same thing except Plank is just wider. Is that true?
My kitchen cabinetmaker is making our island top but today he told me it isn't skinny pieces but wider and now I don't know if that's what I want?? However he did say it looks like my cutting board but just a little wider??? However he said it's not edge and my board IS edge. I'm totally confused. Maybe he is too as far as terminology.
If I do cut on the top is plank and edge the same thing other than visually?
