The footprint of this project is 33 ¾” wide, 25 1/8” deep and 35 ½” tall. The island has one 4” deep drawer and two open shelves.

The butcher block top overhangs 2” on both sides and 1 1/4” front and back. The top is 37 ¾” wide, 26 5/8” and 1 ½” thick. The entire project is made from maple.

The construction of the butcher block top was made from 2” thick hard maple.

The legs are made from 2 pieces of 1 5/8” stock that were glued together and then milled to 3” square.

The construction joinery is mortise and tenon. The slats for the shelves are screwed to the stretchers and concealed with contrasting wood plugs.

Awesome! I know how much work that end grain is. You have definitely created a family heirloom for someone.
