We made some changes to our laundry room last summer and I ended up with one extra 2×4 that has since been moved around my shop at least a dozen times, so I finally decided to do something with it! Super easy build that anyone can manage, you can see a quick video of the build process here: https://youtu.be/oNA1EekHEYY

Great project! Is this a homemade whole wheat sourdough?

Looks good. I have one very similar sitting in the shop now (waiting for the butcher block treatment to finish soaking in)

Thanks for posting an all-too-familiar project with a GREAT twist – different material. The 2×4 really gives it a new and different personality.

Are you finishing with mineral oil/butcher block finish? Any experience using one made with 2×4s? Do they hold up to average use?

Thanks again for the “paradigm shift”

I used Watco butcher block finish, we’ve been using it for a little over a week now and have noticed any substantial wear at this point, time will tell.
