It was important to this family that they have a space in their home to host their quilting lessons, so the kitchen was designed with that in mind. The over sized kitchen island made the perfect space for that, but they needed a durable material for the countertops. Enter Bubinga wood. Bubinga wood is an African hardwood that is not only beautiful, but is also extremely durable. This kitchen countertop is cut from a slab of Bubinga wood that is three inches thick, making it plenty durable to sustain the wear and tear of beginning quilters.
