Product details

Countertop with a thick walnut veneer, a durable natural material that can be sanded and surface treated when required.

Layer construction adds stability and makes the countertop less sensitive to humidity, thus, less likely to bend, split or crack than solid wood.

For quick installation and easy maintenance the countertop is pre-treated with hard wax oil.

The countertop has a chevron design that gives it a sophisticated look that supports all kitchen styles.

You can cut the countertop to the length you want and cover the edges with the 2 included edging strips.

Good environmental choice, because the method of using a top layer of wood on particleboard is resource-efficient.

25-year Limited Warranty. Read about the terms in the Limited Warranty brochure.

  • Walnut is a straight-grained hardwood with good stability and strength properties. It gets lighter as it ages – from the dark brown to a rich honey color that appears through the grain.

    Not suitable for use in damp rooms.

    Every worktop is unique, with varying grain pattern and natural color shifts that are part of the charm of wood.

  • Top/ Edge:

    Thick walnut veneer, Oil-acrylic

    Back side:


    Main parts:


    To ensure that your countertop ages gracefully, treat it regularly with STOCKARYD wood treatment oil; it gives the surface a beautiful sheen, protects the wood and prolongs the life of the countertop.

  • Supporting legs are required when an overhang exceeds 10". The maximum distance between these legs should not be more than 32".
  • We have clear requirements for all the wood we use, including a ban on illegally harvested wood. By 2020, we want all our wood to come from more sustainable sources, defined as certified or recycled.

Love itAllisonLooks beautiful but does scratch easily.5
Stunning top!michaelWe got the 98” for a 2 person desk. My mom loved the finish so much she got the 74”, as it’s beauty belies the reasonable price. Very solid, well made, and a treat to look at.5
Very nice product! Looks greatRobertVery nice product! Looks great and works well as a desktop.5
Like the patternKimberly C.Used this to make a counter top for a small bathroom vanity that my husband made out of walnut and it matched perfectly. Not completely convinced that it would hold up if used every day-especially in a kitchen-but it worked great for our purposes.4
So beautiful!ElizabethSo beautiful! I love these countertops. They have a very thick wear layer and are easy to customize.5
Like the countertops but....HomeNVyI bought (2) 6 footers and (2) 8 footers. I didn’t receive the 8 footers and was told I would get a store credit...haven’t seen it yet but I’m guessing that may have something to do with Covid. In short, the 3 stars are more for the customer service than the product, countertops are nice for the price....unless you get half your order, then you could get really expensive granite for the same price.3
Looks great!Muff8We purchased this countertop to cover a run of cabinets in our basement. After pricing out other options, this was clearly our winner. The design is interesting and the quality of the top is good. We did not have to cut it in anyway so I can’t speak to how the replacement edging would apply. I would suggest checking the countertop in the store by opening the packaging. Several of them had been damaged in shipping. It took us a few tries before we found one in pristine condition in the box. I gave it a four star on quality simply because it is not solid wood, but I knew this going in and it is to be expected given the price point.5
Looks amazingHappymom68I bought these countertops tops for my laundry room. They look amazing!! Easy to clean and care for.5
Beautiful patternBeeDadsWe bought two countertops to make out oven bar area. The pattern gave the bar a unique look! It cleans well and looks great.5
Beautiful countertoppeegI am using this as a desktop and it is perfect.5
Good countertop (so far)ChoguilIt’s been 4 months since I installed this countertop. It looks great and no signs of warping or anything like that. Very holy with the looks and the finish. I’ve only oil the surface 3 times to keep the water off for good. The countertop itself already comes ready to Install so no treatment is necessary. The only down side is that, due to ikea environmental agreements, the countertop is not solid wood.4
Beautiful but not durableoutofluckThe look is stunning. We love how it looks. We had them professionally installed by IKEA. Within months we had to call for repairs as the seams that connect the countertops together was coming out. Now a year later the counters are swollen at the seams from water seeping in and we need to have them replaced. Unfortunate, stressful and disappointing.1
Style boosterSew says MGI bought this countertop to use as a bar height table in a kitchen remodel. It was a great style booster. Ordered barstool legs online.5
Beautiful design and finishBudrickI used this countertop as a top to a built in desk. Cannot comment on the durability yet but it’s a beautiful piece.5
Beautifully designedShan80138Used this on our peninsula and it’s so beautiful.5
dont be fooledhi hopesfirst of all....its not butcherblock - this is a very thin veneer over particleboard. when you make cuts in it the veneer splinters almost 1/4 of an inch into the visible area left you have to trim over that or deal with it....but dont sand only gets worse. was told by ikea this is supposed to be fine for a kitchen countertop and sink installation. however, when you make the correct marks and cut the hole as described....there is very little to no wiggle room for when you make your cuts and the veneer splinters all the way around the hole you just made for the sink....once installed....the splinters are visible and you can feel them and it looks horrible. so now after installation i have a crummy looking edge against the wall....and all around my sink looks junky.....and it seems that every tool i set on the countertop...leaves an indentation. so im installing the countertop i am already planning its replacement. WHEEEEEEE !1
Looks great, not sure about durabilityDavid GravesOur beach house kitchen renovation used this countertop. It was easy to install, but I have some marble slabs in case it doesn't hold up over time!3
Beautiful Walnut CountertopMike1933We are just completing a mid-century/contemporary house. It has several Walnut Doors and I thought it would make a classic statement if the wet bar (24 & 30 base cabinets with SS Grevesta Doors/Drawers) which is near one of the Walnut Doors had a walnut top. The Barkaboda top is far more interesting than Ikea's other Walnut Top and the larger 8 ft. top was done with a waterfall edge which goes to the floor. It turned out to be spectacular. We used a drop in Ikea SS Sink with drainboard and white glass cabinets above. All from IKEA. Overall a WOW kind of impression.5
Great new look for the kitchenTreatwithrespectHave received so many compliments for this look. Most people haven’t seen it before and want to know all about it. Easy to care for.5

Better countertops with fewer trees

At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilize materials in the best possible way. For our countertops in thick veneer it means that we combine old craftsmanship with modern manufacturing methods. It makes the countertops easier to install, more stable and more resistant to humidity compared to solid countertops. And since we use the whole tree – even the crooked branches and the small twigs – we can save natural resources too.

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

“At IKEA we have a tradition of trying to utilize the materials we have in the best possible way,” says Johnny Rietz, who’s been involved in developing the kitchen worktops in thick veneer. The work started in 2008 when IKEA founder, Ingvar Kamprad, visited one of our suppliers and asked a simple question that took some time to answer: ‘How can we make this product using fewer trees?’

Less is more

“After some trials and errors, we came up with the solution. A core of particleboard and a layer of solid wood on the outside – or thick veneer,” says Johnny. “It’s a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern manufacturing methods. Paper-thin veneer has been used in fine, decorative furniture making for centuries, but for our worktops we’re using a much thicker layer of wood.” The thick veneer makes the surface hardwearing, and it saves raw material – a lot of it. From the same amount of wood needed to make one solid worktop, it’s possible to produce five thick veneer worktops.

No wood is wasted

Another advantage with this production technique is that you can use the whole tree; the stem as surface, and scrap bits – curvy, bent branches and small twigs – for the particleboard on the inside. The end result is a worktop that is every bit as genuine as solid wood, only more stable and more resistant to humidity. “Sometimes a small, harmless question can make a big difference. That’s exactly what happened with our kitchen worktops. It started as a challenge to use resources wiser, and proved to have positive effects not only for the environment, but also the quality. I think it’s great when that happens!” says Johnny.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

What is veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak, and beech, and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
