[Lowe's] Acacia Straight Cut Kitchen Countertop - $99.99

A pretty good price on a countertop that I will be using with a standing desk frame I hope to purchase in the near future. I know a lot of us RFDers like to pay less for a frame and grab a cheap top of our choosing. There was also an offer on the home page that I missed for $5 off a purchase of $55 or more, which would have brought it down to $94.99

If the look of this one doesn't do it for you, the other countertops are all 20% off right now as well.

Edit: I also received a pop up to subscribe to their newsletter and save $10 off the next purchase of $50 or more. Could bring this down to $89.99.

I built my kitchen island with an acacia island top from Lowes. I love it, but acacia is pretty soft. Just writing on a single sheet of paper with a ballpoint pen leaves an impression of the writing in the wood. This is perfectly fine for kitchens and some texture is nice, but just FYI if you will be doing a lot of writing on this countertop, since you'll be using it as a desk.

Thanks for the heads up. I barely do any writing so it wont be that big of a concern to me, but it is interesting since when I googled "acacia" it came up as being hard wood. I guess that's to be expected though with the price.

what did you use to build the kitchen island? I'd be interested in making a cart with shelves and a cutting board top

I bought this for use as my desk last time it was on sale; it looks beautiful but as jm1 said, it does damage pretty easy.

Make sure to use the email list discount, if theyre still doing it. Cut an extra $10 off the price for me.

Perhaps try coating it with flooring varnish and let it cure before you write on it?

Hardwood doesn't mean the wood is hard. It's really just a definition. Usually softwoods are evergreens, everything else is a hardwood.

It's a stupid name imo

For those that are in the market for a kitchen countertop, Lowe’s has one for $99 (reg $149) and you can apply the $10 off email sign up coupon to make it $89.

Those looking for a desktop for their sit-stand desks may want to consider this as well. This is similar to the Home Depot one at $149. So, at $89 it’s a pretty good deal. I am assuming the quality is better than the standard ikea ones.

I think this is a pretty good deal.

Thanks and stay safe.

From the other thread some folks mention the wood is quite soft and easy to scuff up fyi.

Looking for 15" depth one for base cabinets.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.
