Here is the latest Butcher Block Table…. Overall measurements are :Length 72”, Width 36”, Height 32.75”...
The top is built using 2”x2”x2.75”maple end grain blocks…This table ate up huge amounts of maple…. Legs are solid 5”x5” Maple…..
This is the second table like this and I think it will be my last for awhile as its very time consuming and looses the ‘fun’ factor after the second or third glue up.
The bolts are made up of threaded rod welded to hanger bolts, All the bolt holes had to be predrilled with a smaller bit to ensure that I was going thru the center of the tenon, then progressively larger bits were used.
The steel pipe in the lower area was countersunk into the wood rails and then the nut/washer was added to threaded rod that had previously been welded into teh ends of the pipe.
All the wood for this started in the slab form and then I milled it down to spec. The live edges that you see here and there were intentionally left to give it a tad more character..
Apologies for the last pic, but it gives some scale…lol
Thanks for looking
