This butcher’s block is made mostly of maple, but with red oak drawer sides, runners and drawer pull. This was my first attempt at a dovetailed drawer and also at chiseling all of the mortises for the aprons and two shelf supports into the legs.
I added a bead at the bottom of each apron (a bit difficult to see in the photos) by filing the profile into a card scraper and scratching it into the aprons. The top is attached by screws and maple fasteners to allow for movement, and so that I can remove the top to sand and refinish when needed. Thanks for looking.
