I built this table while in high school. The top is end grain butcher block made from walnut, maple, cherry and old growth cherry. There are over 700 pieces in the top alone. The base is made from cherry and was built using a domino joiner and pocket screws. Finished with wipe on poly.

The top is 35” x 22.5” and I think I used 400 grit for the last pass with the sander.

You can cut some veggies and watch tv at the same time. Nice table, never seen a butcher block coffee table.

Great looking table. How did you secure the top to the base?

I used z clips to secure the top to the apron, I think between 8-10 in total.
