I just had to get in on the act and make a few of these for gifts. It was not as easy as I thought it would be. The first one I made (which has seen a month of use now and is the faded one in the top left of the first picture) is lacking a bit of glue because I took so long with the glue up and glued it up on its side. The next one I did the final glue up by stacking them on top of each other but this made it hard to align. Anyway here they are. They are all maple and purpleheart finished with Watco butcher block oil & finish. There’s a special prize to the person that can spot the mistake I made on two of them that I made together (hint: see pictures 4 and 5)
Next project will be some endgrain tumbling block butcher block boards. I bought a bevel box to help me with that one. Another project; another tool.
