Caribou butcher block products are handcrafted by Canadian artisans to survive in the world’s harshest climate. The wood blocks are layered and radio frequency glued together for a stronger bond, providing greater overall strength. The block is then aged and treated with Caribou’s proprietary End+Edge Technology. This polyspray application is food safe, waterproof, and impact resistant, so it protects seams and grain against everyday damage while eliminating the need for tedious maintenance.
