Wow. That top must have been quite heavy to work.

The only prolblem I see is that it is too nice to use.

What is the opening at the bottom ?

#2 posted 1572 days ago

Actually the top is locked in by gavity. It can be removed and sanded down as needed.

PaulfromVictor,
The shelf dirrectly under the top is for bread or wrapping boxes ( i.e. cellophane, alluminum foil) The opening at the bottom is intended for cookie sheets bread pans etc.

Dennis,
It was built for my beautiful wife four years ago and gets used multible times throughout the day. It has remained very sturdy and can withstand the test of time. Don’t tell her but, I use it to stand on to change some of the kitchen light bulbs. (with clean feet of course)
Thanks, Greg

Nice chopping block. What finish did you use on it?

-- Donnie-- listen to the wood.

Donjoe,
I used mineral oil on the chop block. For the stand/table I used a clear urethane spary.
