Project Information

I don't have a picture of the completed stand with the butcher Blocks, but they are shown in the pictures. They are being oiled by the customer while I finished the stand.
The stand was made with Alder and Sapele with veneer covering the shelves (the veneer I had on hand was several varieties of left overs from earlier projects, so I made fan patterns to use up the different types). The blocks were made of Beech and are 4.5" Thick.
I used my Kreg Pocket hole a lot on this project and was very happy with the results. It really was easy keeping the case assembly square and the joints are strong.
I changed my procedure on the block this time by staggering the joints down the center of each block I think it will be a lot stronger and I built a frame for clamping it together, I also placed two pieces of plywood with staggered spacers on the end during clamping, this gave it a spring action that kept pressure on the 12 thick glue joints as the glue dried and shrank.
The shelves that slide from each side were veneer covered with a two part finish, this gave them an easy to clean glass smooth surface.
I also used my panel bits to install panels this time rather than running wide boards the way my last one was built.

I hope they get a lot of use from this.

I am curious about picture 1 in the middle. Can you explain this? Those look like bread boards.

Natenaaron- I assume your talking about the shelf, it's plywood covered in mahogany and maple veneer, I cut it in a fan pattern.

Natenaaron- If you are talking about the top, it's just where the butcher blocks are removed, both can be removed for cleaning and are reversible if you like a display side and a working side to the block.
