True enough, PurpleV! Brontosaurus steaks, maybe? I recall an old chopping block in an Antiques shop, it was probably 18” X 18” X 18”, on stout turned legs. It had one corner worn down, maybe 3” deep, some poor sap in a Butcher shop probably stood in one spot for eight hours a day cleaving pork chops. What a life.. Kookaburra: Yeah, probably enough board-feet of maple in that cube…hmmm $55 bucks… Too bad they ’butchered’ it with the steel braces… that couldn’t be original to the piece, could it?
We need the “Handplanes of Your Dreams” gang to give this block a good smoothing!
