That sure has some great color!!! Looks like you will get many generations of use out of it. How thick is the top? Butcher block finish?Thanks for sharing!

The top in 4 3/4” thick and I used beeswax to polish it. I really enjoyed making this project.

I have a client who wants me to make a 5 foot square butcher block. 4 inch thick. I’ve done end grain cutting boards, but nothing that thick. Any suggestions?

Sparkyy-I ran into a challenge when glueing the boards. The glue dried so fast I had to get the lines and boards lined up right the first time. By the time I got to the end, the first boards were almost dry (mallet work needed)I would suggest looking at making 4 or 5 separate sections. Sand them and then glueing them all together at the end. Get a friend to help with the glue.
Good luck, sounds fun!
