Nothing really new here. More of an excuse to post pictures of hand planes!
I made this butcher block for a friend and you guessed it right, his name starts with “R”.
I jointed the edges with the No.7 & glued them up. I smoothed it with the 7, 6, 5, 4, and 80 (my typical sequence). I planed the endgrain with a 60 1/2 & 65, worried about tear-out with the big boys. Burned my friend’s initial & flooded it with mineral oil.
