I have an IKEA butcher block counter that I love. My biggest problem is around the sink, as others have mentioned. I should have put in a double sink so I could use one side for drying the dishes, but didn't think of that at the time. So now my drain board tends to drain down next to the sink under the drain board because I don't have it hanging over the edge of the sink. (My stainless steel sink has a very high lip around the edge, so if I prop the end of the drain board over the edge of the sink, it drains backward!) Maybe all I need to do is get a different drain board that has a steeper incline and I can place it over the edge of the sink. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I tried placing a towel under the board, but as expected, having a wet towel there wasn't any better. The wood is starting to warp, and it's only about a month old . . .
