Simple is better sometimes
2.5 inch thick Maple edge grain butcher top with a simple stand, drawer, and bottom shelf.
My own design but have seen these in French Kitchens before.
Made with Pine and pickeled off white stain.
A few coats of poly on the stand and I treat the top with mineral oil a few times a year.
Look great at the cottage

Nice table – like MsDebbie said – it has that country look to it, and that’s a good thing.
