Butcher block

Submitted by Medickep on Wed, 02/01/2017 - 18:15

I decided to add this island to my kitchen as I had a lot of open space in my kitchen.   It gave a lot more counter space and when I adjust the pot rack, it will open up an entire cabinet too! The body is painted the color my cabinets are about to become and the stain matches some other woodwork in the house. I applied polyurethane to the stained pieces and plan on using cutting boards to avoid the look of a beat up butcher block as well as the maintenance that goes with them!  Wherever I could hide the edges, I used plywood instead of 1x8's as I had leftovers from a bench I made.
