Construction Style: Custom Wood Countertops 

Flat Grain (plank style) Wood Countertops:

This style shows off the boards’ Zebrawood custom countertopnatural face graining and is a great choice for desk tops, table tops and other non-food prep areas.  Species that have a lot of natural grain character show exceptionally well in this style (Hickory, Ash, Oak, Cherry, Exotics, etc.).

Flat grain wood countertops are our most popular wood countertop design. They are affordable and showcase the beauty of the face of the wood boards.


Edge Grain Wood Countertops:

This wood countertop style is achieved by Lyptus Custom Wood Countertoplaying the boards on edge before assembly.  This creates an extremely hard surface and reveals more grain character of the wood species than the flat grain style. A great option for nearly every wood species available.

Although there is more work involved in creating an edge grain countertop, the results are stunning.
