Wow! That is beautiful. I love the way it looks with the white base. Congratulations on a great build.

How wide were the strips cut? Is there a standard size for the pieces to lami ate..I am just frigging drooling over that slab. What about an entire counter top out of butcher block? Thank you for the inspiration sir.

That’s an impressive job. I’ve never seen a kitchen island that deep before. I can’t imagine what they’re going do use the center for.

frankenstuff: strips were cut to 2-1/2” before planing and sanding. We have done entire countertops out of butcher block.

Dusty56: Customer is going to use a mineral oil and beezwax mixture.

It took 8 people to get it inside. We made a dolly for it to roll into the house. We don’t warranty such a large butcher block.

Thanks everyone!

I love the look of the unfinished walnut on the white base. I’m thinking about building a kitchen table and matching bench with that combination. Anyone know of a protective finish that would leave the walnut looking unfinished?

I would think water based poly and no stain would be the best bet to make something look unfinished and in a satin finish.
