Sinister Style Butcher Block. Measures approx 20”x30”x2” Thick. The glue up for the top consisted of over 120 blocks, which made glue up interesting to say the least.

Made using Mahogany, Birch and Cherry. Finished with Mineral Oil, followed by an oil/wax combo. The base is finished with Poly, Tung and BLO.

The colors on the top didn’t come out with nearly as much contrast as I expected, but happy with it nonetheless.

Nice I really had to look at ths one for a while. The craftsmanship is perfect, I think I like the other one better that you made. This one is a little busy for me, then it started growing one me… Great work. I guess im rambling sorry …. Keep it up!

This is fantastic !!
You said it didn’t have as much contrast as you had intended,
sometimes wildly contrasting wood colors can be
displeasing to the eye.
I think the subtle contrasts you have here are perfect and pleasing.
This is a real winner !! : )

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Degoose: Yes I have been for probably over a year, continually checking out other people projects…

Ken90712: My thoughts as well, at first I really preferred the tile looking one, but it’s definitely close.

Knotcurser: I use a router sled I recently built with a bottoming bit. (I suppose I could post pics of that “project”)
