The modern butcher block countertops are made of blocks or strips of wood bonded together with glue under heat and pressure to create a single slab of wood that can withstand years of heavy wear food preparation and still look good.
Cleaning and disinfection

Using the block
You must not cut raw meat or poultry directly on the surface of the butcher block table. To avoid contamination, place a plastic cutting board on the wood, and cut raw meat on it. You can cut the cooked meat and raw or cooked vegetables directly on the butcher block. But wood surfaces can become be profoundly damaged by knife marks, making it difficult to clean and disinfect. If this is a problem, sand the top and again treated with mineral oil.
