Everyone Needs A Caribou
Our natural products vary in grain, colour, and hew, creating a unique surface - just as mother nature intended it to be. When you purchase a Caribou surface you will own an original artisan created product. No two surfaces are the same.
Caribou is proudly handcrafted with environmentally sustainable, aged and tested North American hardwoods. Wood blocks are fused together with NSF Food Safe Radio Frequency Glue, CNC cut to your perfect dimensions and subjected to our rigorous quality control procedures. Caribou is finished with either the industry leading End+Edge Technology or our premium wax oil treatment. The result is a beautiful, durable, craftsman built wooden surface for the ages.
Caribou stands behind it’s products and is paired with the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. Suitable for both residential and commercial applications, Caribou’s butcher block introduces a warm, natural and timeless design element in any space.
