One of our son’s is into cooking. Asked me to make a kitchen island like ours, but with a butcher block top. Base is Ash and top is 5” thick maple.

I want one. Want to build one. Need a kitchen big enough for one. You did a great job. Thanks for posting.

Very nice piece. It’s difficult to see, but it looks like the legs are attached to the cabinet with screws. Is that correct?

Very nice! That thing’s got to be a bear to move.
How’d you glue up the top? Layer by layer or did you do it in sections?
I’ve managed a few boards, but nothing of this scale.

Wow, that is a beast! I like the walnut spacer you used on the top. It helps hide the knife slots and adds an interesting element.

WOW – let’s see – my kitchen is too small for that and it’s definitely bigger than our breakfast nook so – I guess I’ll just have to remain at the drooling stage. Great work.

how does one flatten a butcher block top? same way as a work bench or table top? did you use a router sled/jig?
