Counterpoint: I’ve seen and heard from tons of people who have been very happy with their solid wood countertops, including on this site. Many people have attested to the fact that a properly finished wood countertop is perfectly fine in a kitchen. I don’t think cupping would be an issuse as I’m using commercially-fabricated top with 1 1/2’ strips rather than a few face-grain planks with similar continuous grain pattern.

I suppose if problems happen, then I’ll deal with them, but I’ve read enough to feel comfortable in trying. And costing around $2,000 less than granite, quartz, or any other tops that are not crappy laminate particle board, It’s a risk I’m willing to take.
