Refurbished roll around kitchen butcher block. Cleaned and oiled leg assembly after removing the original cutting surface…[mounted on ChipBoard]
New top is 600 mm by 500 mm approx 30 mm thick.
Sanded the end grain top with my new Festool Rotex… what a powerful machine… made very light work of the top…
Oiled with mineral oil and finished with mineral oil/beeswax butter…as you can see in the last pic.

That is a very attractive top Larry.
Great job Mate.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
