My sister bought a new house and is thinking she wants a butcher block island for her kitchen. Since I have never attempted making anything like that I thought I would practice with some junk wood that I had acquired. I have a bunch of black walnut with a lot of sap wood in it and it is usually too much of a contrast for my liking. I have come to like it in this application though. It lends to a neat pattern.
With a couple cherry accents, I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. This was gonna just be a practice exercise and I was gonna just give the board to whomever wanted it, but I might have a hard time giving it away. Not I see why people like like making these so much
