The plan is to turn this cutting board into a full size table. Nearly 7’ long, 30” wide and 1.75” thick. Just working out the details on a functional base at this time. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Dominic

I guess you mean make a larger cutting board with the same pattern for the table top.

Dominic,
I must be missing something….if this piece is 1.75 inches thick, it isn’t 7 feet long or 30 inches wide. Is this a portion of the cutting board you plan to use?

I will be using this design, just on a grander scale. This particular cutting board is sitting on a customers counter top now and is the inspiration for the table, yet to be built.

It’s a beauty, table should be as well.

Yes, it will be a tank of a table. The African Mahogany will counter the weight of the Black Walnut a bit. I am thinking Walnut legs/base. But, that will hinge on the support and ideas you all assist me with. It will be a conference room table, will never be moved, and have rolling chairs (think office building) around it.

Thanks LJ’s!

7’ long and 1.75” thick?? yowza, yowza, you will lneed a stout base to hold that top securely in place and not be top heavy.
I will be looking forward to your post of the completed table and your choice of base.

So most of the wider pieces will be 5+ inches wide x 7’ long…Are you hoping to get your 1.75 thickness out of 8/4 stock , or will you need to start with 10/4 ? Do you have the stock already ? Any estimates on the cost of the finished table ?
Did you make the board pictured above ?

@ Dusty56 – Yes the board above is one of mine. 8/4 stock will get me there with little trouble. My local mill lets me pick through the wood pile to find the best of the best. Price…well…it’s not going to be cheap. But, after some research it will still be a good deal for its new owner.
