Sometimes crazy ideas come out OK. A customer wanted a working chopping block on his granite counter top but did not want just a standard chopping block. This is the idea he and the interior decorator came up with and it works. It is made of solid black walnut. The part of the walnut that is above the granite top is 2” thick and is not sitting directly on the top. I was afraid of the top wicking up moisture so I used soft plastic bumpers which you use on cabinet doors to prevent the wood door from hitting the frame. You don’s see them but they are there. I had to use epoxy to keep them on. The block can be removed fairly easily, but heavy enough that it wants to stay in place.
