I recently had the good fortune to tour the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier Museum. In the galley was the original butchers block. It was at least 18” thick and about 36” square. It was made of solid Maple and was end grain construction. Besides the gigantic size, it was really special because each piece was about 2” square and fitted together with- what looked like- sliding dove tails!
