The dining table has been deliveredn and is shown in its final resting place.
Salvaging enough timber to make the butchers block top has been a nightmare. The maximum thickness of the pieces i finished up using was only just over an inch which came down to just less than an inch after machining the faces. The maximum width of the pieces was only 3 inches. This meant I had to assemble and glue three times as many bits of wood as i would normally use on a top this size.
It cost a fortune in glue…..
When the glue is dry I will machine it square, sand the top smooth and put a timber border all around it.
