Construction Style

Finger-jointed Style
To create your countertop, regular lumber is cut into uniform
width, edge-grain style blanks that are joined together with a special machine to make longer pieces, sometimes up to twenty feet long!
This process allows Heirloom Countertops to remove strength-reducing defects and other sometimes unappealing characteristics found in conventional
boards. Finger-joints are specifically designed to be structurally strong and long-lasting. In strength, stability, and straightness, finger-jointed lumber surpasses conventional methods by reducing warping and twisting found in full length boards and ensures a consistently high-quality final product.

Did we mention finger-jointing is more environmentally friendly than traditional methods? By drastically reducing the waste from conventional glue-ups, finger-jointing maximizes the yield of every tree selected, greatly decreasing sourcing issues and lead times associated with long lumber.
