Waiting on Walnut (another first world problem)

We ordered the walnut butcher block countertop from Lumber Liquidators in February, with the assurance it would be delivered around the first of March. One month and many phone calls later, it arrived on Fed Ex freight wet, scratched, 2 corners crushed and every plane bearing some manner of blemish. We had to refuse it.

Fed Ex claims it was not properly packaged, Lumber Liquidators asserts it was improperly handled.  Either way, we are caught in the middle. The replacement ETA is May 2nd. There is no mudroom sink without a countertop, so..once again, we are waiting on walnut.
