The Ultimate Butcher Block is made from oil-finished natural yellow birch hardwood, which is indigenous to the Northeastern U.S. and ranges in color from blond to a darker walnut shade; the natural variation in color allows this butcher block to coordinate with your existing decor. End-grain wood is laid together side by side to create a smooth surface with a cross-hatched appearance. It is designed to cushion your knives, preventing wear and tear on the blade, and minimizing cuts and scratches in the surface of the board. The Ultimate Butcher Block is reversible and has cut-out finger slots on two sides to make it easily portable. Its natural oil finish makes it durable and beautiful.
Catskill Craftsmen's Eco-friendly Practices Catskill Craftsmen is committed to protecting the environment through responsible forest management and manufacturing practices. Located in the Catskill Mountains of upper state New York, Catskill Craftsmen plays a role in maintaining the health of the New York City watershed. This watershed provides clean water for New York City and other communities in the area. Healthy, well-managed forests are better able to filter pollutants from entering streams and rivers, which preserves the quality of watershed resources. With this goal in mind, the company supports the efforts of the Watershed Agricultural Council (WAC). With the WAC, Catskill Craftsmen encourages lumber suppliers (family forest owners and public land managers) to make wise harvesting decisions and control erosion in order to safeguard water quality.
Other efforts to protect the environment include using sustainable wood sources and reducing wood waste. Catskill Craftsmen's manufactured items are made from naturally self-sustaining, non-endangered North American hardwoods, primarily birch and hard rock maple. All sawdust, shavings, and waste materials generated during the manufacturing process are converted into wood pellet fuel used to heat homes. This alternative heating source creates less ash and lower emissions than some other fuels. By operating their own wood pellet mill, Catskill Craftsmen reduces their wood waste to zero. As natural resources become even more valuable, Catskill Craftsmen will continue to advance proper stewardship of the pristine Catskill Mountain region.
