Project Information

EDIT: Holy cow we made it to the Daily Top 3! Thanks everyone - make sure you check out the full video build here:

This community is truly amazing. I think a few of you saw my first post yesterday - a butcher block desk that I could have been more thrilled to share with the world and your response and encouragement to me was nearly overwhelming. I very much look forward to being a part of this community moving forward, sharing my projects, receiving feedback, and growing in my skills.

With that, I wanted to share another project I posted a few weeks ago. Reddit didn't love it, but my friend who commissioned me to make it for him really loved it. I was still finding my "presentation" style in this vid, so go easy on me :)

If you want to check out my written article about it, you can see it's final resting place in his bar. I originally thought this project would be much quicker, but it ended up taking me the better part of four total working days to complete between break down, ripping, multiple gluing assemblies, and finishing.

But…proud of it and wanted to give it a share. Cheers!

Thanks @Pottz - I chiseled it out and then actually use my miter saw with depth stop to cut it out more tightly.

Ideally I'd have used a router, but I don't own one yet (and definitely didn't at the time) so I couldn't - but it definitely took much more work!

@majuvia - ha! thanks man - in reality i should have done a few coats as it didn't quite translate as well as I hoped, but that's something I think I could easily fix if I wanted. thanks for watching the vid.
