It’s been almost two years since I posted last project.
After finishing this, I wish this took less than a year,
but it’s well over two years.
Because of my back pain, handling this heavy block
had been a real pain, both physically and mentally.
Whatever…. it’s done finally.
I believe many people understand what I’m talking,
the pain for looking at unfinished project collecting
dust over two years.

End grain is maple and most of other parts are cherry.
Installed 2.5” casters for easy movement.
Top is 24”x42”x3.5”

Very nice. It shows you put allot of work into making this. I’m sure you will use it for years.

Not quite as delicate as many of your previous posts but then you can’t use a cleaver on them. Still showing lots of fine details though and a couple of quirky joker pieces in the top. Glad you’ve come back online with your health and shown us a winner.

vipond33 – I’ve never imagine this block is that heavy to my back.
Whenever I see this, I had guilty feel for not finishing asap.
It’s a bit roughly done just to finish, now I can start other project.
