Acacia is species of wood that is found in the forests of Vietnam and Australia. Our island tops are Forestry Stewardship Council certified (FSC) which means the wood is harvested from sustainable, renewable plantations. It is naturally water resistant and is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. It is important to note that acacia should be conditioned with wood oils that are food safe for wood preparation areas. For the first month the conditioning oil should be applied weekly so that any water left standing on the surface just bubbles up. Once that has been achieved then it's just a matter of re-applying the conditioning oil annually to maintain the wood surface for a lifetime of use. The 74 in. x 40 in. x 1 in. size is design for island top application, so it fits standard kitchen cabinets. Acacia can be cut, drilled, routed and joined easily with standard wood working tools so that it is possible to fit them to any island top configuration.
