  1. End Grain Top, A true labor of love

    I have had the opportunity to build several, end grain, butcher block cutting boards when a close friend asked if i could make a counter top for a kitchen island. The process is the same, but it is considerably more work to build a larger top…especially in a small shop like mine. I was...

  3. DIY Butcher Block-Styled Modern Skinny Desk

    Hi Everyone, First time visitor and poster to this forum (literally just learned about it). Been woodworking/building for the better part of two years now. Started my blog on my builds about a year ago, and my YouTube channel on my builds about 2 months ago and love every second of it...
  4. Walnut End Grain Cheese Block

    I normally saw lumber and build furniture, but I got in the shop recently and built some little odds and ends that I had been wanting to make for a while. I've already listed my tortilla press, but here is an end grain block I made as well. I really like the contrast of the white sapwood with...
  5. Butcher Block Island

    This is the second iteration of this project. I can post picture of the first but they are pretty much the same except for the wood selection. I built an end grain cutting board for a friend and found it convenient to keep it on an island she had. But the storage was not very good and the...
  6. Butcher Block Island

    This was built for a my wife who is a local chef, who is also very into green building, and recycled furniture. She wanted a butcher block out of recyled lumber collected locally for her kitchen. After much dumpster diving, and lots of sorting, I came up with some good pieces to get the job...
  7. Christmas cutting boards

    I did the cutting board thing for Christmas too. I think I made 13 or 14 in all. I did most of them wood whisperer style, then started experimenting with some different variations. The wood species are maple and walnut and maple and cherry. Both finished w salad bowl finish. I really didn't...
  8. Tortilla Press

    This project was a request from my wife who grew up with fresh tortillas….I however had not and did not see the purpose…..but if momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy:) I, being relatively new to woodworking thought I could give this a whirl. I built the first one @ 8" but after a trial run my...
  9. Maple & Walnut Butcher Block

    Every year, I play in a four day golf tournament with a longtime family friend. Originally, I would barter my landscaping services in exchange for entry but once I started woodworking, furniture became the currency. Last year it was a small entertainment cabinet and this year he and his wife...
  10. Metal Leg Side Table

    We were asked to do something different with this piece. Typically we work with reclaimed Wood only, but our customer wanted a table with metal legs to match a few other pieces they already had. We had some experience with basic welding and metal working, so we gave it a shot and this what...
  11. End Grain Cutting Board

    This is a Wood Whisperer design end grain cutting board. Made with 8/4 Maple and Purple Heart Sanded up to 180 Grit and finished with 2 coats of Howard's Butcher Block Conditioner The PurpleHeart really darkened up when finished. Any ideas how to keep the colour? Same thing happens to me when I...
  12. Stack 'O Boards

    Combo of walnut, cherry, maple, and padauk. These are just the result of cutting up the remaining stock I had into something useful. All edges are chamfered with the jointer, and then the board is sanded to 320. Raise the grain with some water between 120 and 220. Finished with mineral oil and...
  13. Christmas Presents - End grain boards

    Here are a couple of end grain cutting boards I made for Christmas presents. First board is Maple wiith walnut accents and the second is maple, walnut and zebrawood. I like how both turned out. The smaller one is for my girlfriend's mother and the larger for my own mother. I wish I made more...

    walnut, cherry, maple, and padauk edge grain. Just randomly ordered the pieces and made 4 random cuts and glue ups. First time doing a juice groove and it turned out pretty good. Sanded to 320, raised the grain between 120 and 220. Finished with mineral oil and beeswax

  16. Another endgrain big block butcher block

    I failed to take photos of this one before I gave it to the customer. Since he is a coworker, I asked him to take a few photos of this one in its native state (he leaves it on his cook top unless he is using the middle burners). It's made of cherry, walnut, osage orange and black locust. I had a...

  18. Christmas Presents 1 - Cutting Boards

    I made these cutting boards as Christmas gifts for my Mom and Mother-in-law. My wife has been asking me to make her a smaller "cheese board" for a while now, so I got her to draw me up a full size template of what she had in mind, and I took it from there. I really liked her design, so I made a...
  19. Amazing Grace Cross

    "Amazing Grace" Cross done on the scroll saw. My future mother-in-law is a devout catholic. Lately I've been showering her with gifts like this…..only because I've gotten the scroll saw bug (not for brownie points)......well maybe. :) I started out with a piece of maple and a piece of walnut...
