I made this butchers block for my wife for Christmas. It’s I’d 85% recycled. I bought the oak legs. I found the wood for the block in a home remodel. It took about six weeks for everything to set. It is hard as a rock. My brother in law did the art work he is a very talented and established artist in our area. The ink is water based. And I coated the block with a conditioner then beeswax. About 6 times. That took about six days.

The top inlay is gorgeous! That project is very well thought out, planned and designed!

I like the look of this Butchers Block. It has a very nice old world style look to it. Supper job on this project!

Magnificent! Like that it’s huge and thick and the legs really set it off. The art work made a great accent to it.

The top is hickory. And my wife has refused to use it. Stating that it is one of the nicest things I have made. So now she has rearranged our dining area and made that butchers block into a bistro table. It has two chairs, a candle setting, and a bottle of wine on it. She recycled my recycled project. I new I married her for the right reasons! :)
