This is a butcher block top table I made for my mom for Mother’s Day. The top is maple, cherry, and walnut. The base is made from cherry and finished with amber shellac. The best part is my mom really loves it. So I am happy about it. All comments and critics are welcome.

Looks sharp, especially with your wood selection. It almost looks like you made 2-different blocks, then glued them together, based on the pattern?

nice job catching that. It is loosely based on the table David Marks did years ago on Woodworks. He used 3 different glue ups, but I only used 2.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys.
