Building a Hickory Dining Table and needed a mental break from that. So I took all my scraps and cutoffs glued them up, cut em, and glued em again! And here you have the result. My favorite part of this project, and any project really, is picking, and matching grain. In this case it was to come out with a cool pattern, normally its to hide joints and accent pieces. Im excited to have it in the kitchen matching our table.

The board ended up about 1 1/2” thick. It has hand holds on the end, and is finished with mineral oil.

Hickory is a difficult wood to work with, but the results are beautiful. It also sands to a baby bottom smooth feel fairly easily.

Another project I am thankful for my drum sander!

Nice job. You are right about choosing the grain. I made a spalted hickory butcher block table for my friends’ kitchen. I was limited on the amount of the spalted wood and took quite a long time to design just where each of the boards would lie in the mix. The aprons and legs are maple.
