Laboratory Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher block countertops are made from bonding strips of wood together to form a slab. At PSA, we use edge-grain maple wood coated in Durakryl 102® for improved durability and resistance. Butcher block countertops are durable enough to withstand extreme physical experiments without sustaining significant damage.
