I was asked by Canadian Home Workshop Magazine to build “something for the kitchen”, but seeing as how I detest plywood, I decided to do a butcher block…..but butcher blocks are kinda boring…...so I “spiced it up” :)
The mother of all cutting boards I think! 24X36 X 4.5” thick endgrain cherry/maple/walnut on a solid cherry base.
About 900 butt joints….the single most difficult glue up I have ever done…..just that top took close to 100 hours
16 mortise and tennons, cut with the FMT and splined. 8 of them on the “Y” axis….tricky :)
144 3/8” holes with 72 dowels
Thanks very much for looking :)
