I was asked to build this by a friend; it has two butcher blocks made from beach separated by a walnut piece holder. The stand is alder and mahogany. The stand was finished with a seal coat of shellac and two coats of sprayed poly. The drawers are pine inside with alder fronts. The shelf over the lower drawers is removable. The small shelves under the butcher blocks extend out to give a little more area when needed. Of course the EOD badge was lasered on the top drawer front. As a note for some reason he liked the burn the router left in the groves, so they stayed.
I enjoyed the build, I built the stand layered rather than making the mortise and tenon (three layers allowed me to put it together like a puzzle). I decided to add finger holes on the blocks to make them easier to carry and they can be flipped if he wants a display side and a working side.
