Portable Butcher Block

I’ve planned a butcher block that can be moved around kitchen yet thick and heavy per my chef’s request.
Constructed with cherry and maple and installed 3” casters. Top is finished with bee wax mixture and all other area is polyurethane finished. Caster is overly heavy duty, so I can move it around with finger tips.
Top block is 4” x 22” x 30” and 31” high.
Drawer is walnut and bottom panel is ebony stained.

Looks like an end table. Great job.

Excellent job. I always wanted to build one of these. I’ve checked them out online and they are expensive to buy. Big savings in building your own for sure.

I’ve seen the butcher blocks sold online, they are all very expensive. That is one of the reason to build it by myself. I realized why it’s expensive soon after starting the work. Simply it needs a lot of work… cutting, sanding,.. very time consuming… Fine finish on took me about a month… not a simple weekend project but well worth of working on it.

That’s one beautifully designed and made butcher block. Like the wood combo, the drawer and the casters. Excellent work!

I used tenon and mortise joint because it’s easy to implement in this case and strong.
Thank you for looking…
