Here is a counter top I did for a friend of mine a few years back. It is made from hickory and trimmed in walnut. It looked pretty good in his log cabin.

A great looking counter! Absolutely georgeous. I’m getting ready to start on a very similar project—i.e. to build a counter-top/breakfast bar behind and over my existing counters. (Now I’m really inspired!) Judging from the electrical recepticles in your photos, it appears that your hickory counter sits on top of a short wall behind your cabinets. How did you attach the hickory boards to the wall (or whatever it is) below it?

Steven, that looks great. Good execution.

I’m surprised to see it framed in. How are you accounting for seasonal movement? Has it held up?

Have your say...
