To adapt low kitchen counters, stack butcher block cutting boards

Dear Lynne, 

Our new apartment has low kitchen counters. My back is killing me from working leaning over. Any ideas?

Dear Jennifer,

Long ago, kitchen designer Deborah Krasner shared a solution with us when she talked on the show about people of different heights sharing a kitchen. She told us to collect big, thick butcher block cutting boards and stack them to the height that is right for you. You can stop any slippage with wet paper towels between each one.
