I built this one piece by piece. I then cut, routed, added 24 oz subwoofer magnets, and re-glued both ends. I also chopped a slice off the top for my clock. This thing has All the woods in it.

I made this from a spalted hickory log that lay for three or four years before we had something big enough to move it.

The design on top comes from planning where the spalted sapwood would lie after the first glue-up and flip. The aprons and legs are hard maple.t

You posted your project onto his project thread and didn’t even comment on his project? A bit self-centered maybe?

Thank you Rich. Ironic how we all enjoy woodwork, which is rare on this earth, and can still follow a different compass. Dale. Your chopping block is great, thanks for sharing. While I’m flattered that you appreciate my work so much you couldn’t contain yourself long enough to post your own project thread, I think there are already ways to exhibit your wood. Keep in mind. My thread is not a wood showing contest. It’s just me, showing whomever may be interested, that i have built a positively, magnetically, attractive chopping block, using over ten species of wood and hundreds of individually milled pieces. Also, there are magnets inside it. Also, its brother is an end grain clock.

Looks great. What is your intended use for a block that size? Is the height comfortable to work on?

The unusual size/height make me wonder if this is to serve a specific chopping task.

I like the thought process here, what did you do for the feet?

I have a bunch of scraps that would be great for a project like this. what are the final dimensions?

I think the person posting the title of the thread might be just a tiny bit presumptuous in his evaluation.

I think it was a pun based off of the magnets he put into the chop block.

Great job on making the block and clock match.
