Maple and walnut butcher block/ table for a friends small kitchen. The top is 5” thick, the legs are laminated 5-1/2×2-1/4 and the bottom shelf is 2” thick. I used walnut stain on the side of the top to get a uniformed look. Everything has 3 coats of poly except the top which is oiled and waxed. Since they are going to use it as a table and for cutting I split the height to 34”. I used a hand plane for the first time ever on the top. It was awesome!! Thanks for looking!!!

I think you are being modest here. I just did a butcher block that the top was all the same length and wood and it was a little work. This is beautiful and a lot of work. Great job.

Very cool! Is there any significance to the pattern on the top?
Watch out for those hand planes. They get addicting real quick!

No just a pattern I thought would look good and be different. Yeah I’ve been restoring hand planes and decided to go for it. Yes it was quite cool to use! Thanks you all!
