Here is a butcher block I recently completed. Birch (Tiles) with Mahogany (Grout). The top is finished with Mineral Oil, followed by a oil/wax mix. The base is a blend of poly/tung and BLO.

I really like this. It looks great, is functional, and handmade. Do you keep these or sell them?

Great Job!!

Very cool and great work. Grain orientation is spot on! Finish is perfect! On the legs, did you laminate them or inlay the dark wood? Great work I love it!

Very cool! I did the polar opposite of this a month or so ago as a gift for a neighbor http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31009 – I think I like the look of yours even better (light “bricks” and dark “mortar”). Great job!

Fantastic!

I really like this pattern of board.

Those legs are quite stunning as well.

Very cohesive project here.

Beautiful piece! I like the added the stripe on the legs to visually tie things together.

Did you mortise the legs directly into the top?
