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!

Quite a beauty and very sturdy looking. I would love one for my kitchen!

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!

That’s one beautiful and solid build. The wood combo is really attractive with great finish. Great work!
