Hi all! I picked up a 54×64x2 1/4 inch maple “butcher block” work surface on craigslist the other day. It’s very similar to the one pictured here:
Except mine has seen many hours of use. I would like to rip this thing in half and re-purpose it into two workbench tops 26×64. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with dismantling one of these? It appears there are three threaded rods that run through the piece. If you look at the link below, my top has the same three washers and lugs you see pictured. I’m afraid to start taking it all apart and ruining the piece. I’ve found a guy locally that will run it through his drum sander once I’ve removed the metal and sliced it up.
Any tips or advice? I would post a picture of mine, but it’s still in the back of the truck because it weighs about 350-400 pounds and it’s dark out.
