Best place to order a butcher block top for island.
I am now going in another direction for my island purchase. I might have my dh's boss make the base and buy a top for it. I am looking into my options now. I got a quote from glumber.com. I have no idea if it's high or not since I have not priced them. For a 2 in thick top the cost is $674 in maple or $804 in cherry or walnut. Plus $200 shipping. Does that sound right? The size is 54 by 24.
I may not do this. It sounds like it will be a way more expensive option. The tops of the islands I was looking at are made of douglas fir. Not sure if that's a good option or not.
