Project Information

This butcher's block is made mostly of maple, but with red oak drawer sides, runners and drawer pull. This was my first attempt at a dovetailed drawer and also at chiseling all of the mortises for the aprons and two shelf supports into the legs.

I added a bead at the bottom of each apron (a bit difficult to see in the photos) by filing the profile into a card scraper and scratching it into the aprons. The top is attached by screws and maple fasteners to allow for movement, and so that I can remove the top to sand and refinish when needed. Thanks for looking.

nice detail work on the bottom slats, I like the pillow curves. Using double-tenons a good strong joint. I must complement you if that is your first dovetailing on a drawer, the result is/was well worth the risk.

Very nice. But a butcher's block is something very different from this.
