I began these just at the end of the summer. As teaching came into full swing and other life events, they had to be put off until Christmas break. Finally, a month or so ago, they were installed.

You can see my blog on them here:

Looks great! At the cost of new countertops, and being a woodworker and all, I’ve been thinking of doing the same to mine, will likely use Maple. Good job.

Thanks for the complements. I did do the tile, but some of my students helped me.

The final outcome looks really good. I am sure they will be seeing quite a lot of cooking action.
