This was a custom ordered butcher block that I made for a customer in MI. He wanted a Maple, Cherry and Walnut Block at 2ft x 2ft x 3” with non-slip foot pegs. It was a challenge considering my little ryobi table saw. Overall it turned out pretty good. The wife is a little jealous that I haven’t made her one. One day baby. lol
I used four coats of Watco butcher block oil. Sanded with 400 grit in between.

Very nice board, great color. I have never made one with face grain being up. All mine are edge grain boards. Do you find that with the face grain boards it dulls the knife a little quicker, being your cuttin across the fiber of the wood?
Very nice.
