Alexander Butcher Block is a family owned business in Upstate New York, whose story starts with a young boy recalling the joys of basement woodworking with his dad nearly 40 years ago. Some of the core fundamentals of our custom woodworking company were engrained and established way back then. They have become the cornerstones of Alexander Butcher Block which is to build with the highest integrity. Many other lessons were learned in that basement workshop, and in fact some of the original tools that were used are on display in our showroom both as conversation pieces as well as a daily reminder of how it all began.
Alex leads many of the initiatives and has built an amazing team culture, which his son has recently joined after working part time through middle and high school. With a team of craftsmen who are all focused on creating the most stunning custom woodwork, wood countertops, tables and commercial office furniture, the future growth and success of the company looks bright.
Our customers are led through what’s best described as a luxury buying experience, and Alex has dedicated his time, attention and experience to each and every project with an ultimate goal of forever quality and the best customer experience one can have.

Alexander Butcher Block works diligently to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. We utilize locally sourced urban salvaged slabs, retired orchard, and the drought induced, beetle kill, and other forest salvage trees, reducing our overall carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse gasses. The use of these beautiful woods is an environmental benefit as the carbon is stored and not emitted into the atmosphere.
Unlike other epoxy resins on the market, our resin uses bio content without the use of toxic organic compounds or heavy metals, making it safe for incidental food contact. The resin we use is made from annually renewable resources and is an alternative to traditional epoxy resins made from fossil fuels. When you order a wood creation from us that is made with epoxy resin, you can be sure that it was made with the safest and most environmentally friendly materials and processes.
Our sealing and finishing products also hold a GREENGUARD Certification. GREENGUARD Certification Standards are among the most rigorous in the world, so you can be confident that these products live up to their claims. If a product has been GREENGUARD Certified, it has been tested and scientifically proven to have
low chemical emissions. With a GREENGUARD Certification you
are creating a healthier indoor environment for your home,
office or institution and reducing chemical exposure.
Project waste is entirely recycled here at
Alexander Butcher Block. A majority of
our cut-offs from projects are re-sourced
to local craftsmen and utilized to create
cutting boards and other small wood
projects. Any cut-offs left over that
are not re-sourced, along with any
scrap wood and dust collection
is sent to a local processor
and recycled into mulch.
