A butcher-block counter made from birch or beech can cost little more than laminate and less than half the starter price for natural stone or engineered materials. They can be easy to install. DIYers can cut prefab butcher-block tops to fit around corners, sinks, and appliances much more easily than most stone.
When choosing a barn door, you have the option to use hardwood (like ash) or softwood (like pine). The best wood for your barn doors will largely come down to personal preference and where you're using the door. Hardwood doors made out of a species like ash are very durable.
