Project Information

I made this butchers block for my wife for Christmas. It's I'd 85% recycled. I bought the oak legs. I found the wood for the block in a home remodel. It took about six weeks for everything to set. It is hard as a rock. My brother in law did the art work he is a very talented and established artist in our area. The ink is water based. And I coated the block with a conditioner then beeswax. About 6 times. That took about six days.

Magnificent! Like that it's huge and thick and the legs really set it off. The art work made a great accent to it.

The top is hickory. And my wife has refused to use it. Stating that it is one of the nicest things I have made. So now she has rearranged our dining area and made that butchers block into a bistro table. It has two chairs, a candle setting, and a bottle of wine on it. She recycled my recycled project. I new I married her for the right reasons! :)
