After many nights and weekends, it’s finally complete.
All Maple 1.5” top and the rest 4/4 maple milled to 3/4
Made it for a friend of mine at work. It was a lot of fun and now I can move on to the next project
Thanks to Darrin and Ann for helping out and Thanks to my Dad and father in-law for helping also. It was great spending quality time together doing something worthwhile.

Thank you all for the nice comments. This forum is filled with nice talented people who love creating things and working wood. I got the plans from a popular mechanics website for free and made some modifications to it. I just purchased the wood to make a kitchen island butcher block with 3” thick maple endgrain top. It may take a while due to extensive work related travel, but that’s what’s nice about woodworking; just go at your own pace. Plus my dad will be in town again and we both enjoyed the last project so much that I thought we’d at least get started on this one.
Again, thanks for the kind words.
Take care,
Phil
