Hello everyone. This is my Antique blue butcher block counter. This is one of the new woodworking plans I have posted on Sawtooth Ideas. By the way, if anyone is interested in posting woodworking plans for profit on the internet, check them out. It is free to post the plans and they are easy to work with.This is a smaller version of a counter that I built for a pie shop. This one features two boxes that pull out from either side and has a towel bar on one side and hooks on the other. I put a pine top with rose corners on this one but this piece would be really nice with a real butcher block top.

Hi there, nice project. I think you could post it under projects rather than blog.

I like its color. It has the same ole design, I used to see in my grandmothers photos. It looks different but nice.

Thank you, Geoff, I posted the rest of my projects on the projects board. I’m just getting used to how this site is set up.

Hello catherine, The color is antique blue. It is made by first painting the whole piece blue, then sanding where there would normally be wear and tear, then walnut stain is applied over it. The stain seeps into the sanded areas, and the stain darkens the paint. I put a protective polyurethane to protect the finish.
