A Chip Off The Old (Butcher) Block

After the leaves are raked, it is completely natural to think about improving the decor of your home. While the weather soon becomes too cold for major renovations involving gaping holes in the foundation or walls, a look is swiftly changed by careful choices. Halt dog hair in the kitchen by adding a utility sinks to the basement or garage. replace the rickety metal rocker greeting guests on the front porch with an adirondack chairs that handle the chill.

I have considered adding a butcher block island or counter to the kitchen, but have been disappointed to find many economical islands are actually shipped from China or Vietnam. I recently contacted the Butcher Block Co. and am pleasantly surprised that their products are made in several locations in the United States. Most of the lines they carry come from Vermont, Illinois, and Upstate New York. Of course, the product line could change from time to time, so inquire with the company directly about individual items of interest.
