This is a solid walnut, 29-1/8” diameter end grain butcher block (that’s a 10” chef’s knife in pic 2). The customer designed this with me as he did not want a square block that was cut into a circle. Instead he wanted pie shaped pieces. This is going in their “vacation home” in Uruguay and the last pic shows a plan of the kitchen remodel. You can see where the round block is getting integrated into the marble counter top.
He also wanted a couple engravings, as seen in pics 3 and 4. One is a custom sketch he did of some type of birds and the other was my logo.
Also made a nice shipping crate to protect it during shipment. I figured I needed something like this with large blocks, after I had a break occur in this shipment
After scratching my head for a good week or so, I built a taper cutting jig and a glue up jig to handle it….
I hope I explained everything well enough, but if you have any questions, ask away…
