Two different counter tops
 
We are about to remodel our kitchen. We will have counters in the shape of a 'U' (not rounded though, more like 3 sides of a square.)

We were wanting stone on the 2 sides, and butcher block on the end that connects those two sides, if that makes sense.

I'm looking for ideas on how to go from one to the other. The stone we pretty thin, so we could get a thin butcher block and just butt them against each other and seal them. Or, maybe have the butcher block portion a few inches lower than the stone counters where the tops don't actually touch?

I'm trying to find examples in photos, but not having much luck. Any thoughts or links to photos, etc?

Thanks!

Actually, it's not uncommon to have different levels in counters. it's nice to have a lower top to use for kneading and rolling dough, for instance, where you can get better leverage with a lower top.

OK, good to know! If you know where to find some photos so I can better see how it's done, I'd appreciate it. Believe it or not I couldn't really find any, and I looked for a while

This site has a few different examples of mixed products and varied work heights.

If you are going to do two different types of surfaces then change the height or go with an island over a panynsila.
