At shop class Monday night, another student hauls in two large slabs of butcher block. Next I knew, they tossed the slabs up on the panel cutter and were lopping off 2 feet. Anybody that can afford two chunks 25×96” and then cut off 25%, might have some extra money to toss around. So I headed over for a little chat. I casually asked the cost, and they said $60 each.

The slabs are from Ikea and are unfinished. My fellow students edge joined the two pieces with biscuits and created a future island counter top 48” by 72”. For $120!
