Custom Butcher Block Countertop for Island

Project by SwainCustoms posted 10-28-2015 06:53 PM 21930 views 1 time favorited 12 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I’m so excited to be nearing the end of this huge project that I had to post pictures before lugging it to the finishing booth. It’s a 5’ x 9’ x 3” thick black walnut, edge grain butcher block. It was quite an undertaking but I am sure it will look beautiful in our client’s kitchen. Notice the custom cutout with the sink fit to size. Super proud of this one.

Beautiful work! I was in a Woodcraft store a few years ago. A fellow was working on a maple countertop for a professional chef’s home. I was impressed that he was using a hand plane for the final finish.

Thanks everyone. @dbray45 We do most of our countertop finishes with a high grade conversion varnish, like we would on wood furniture. If the client intends to cut on it, we use a food-safe finish made of mineral oil and beeswax.

If you need beeswax, go to a bee keeper and ask to buy “capping wax.” You may have to melt it and strain the particulates out. Take great care if you do this, it takes very little to create a big fire.

While I love the work here, I really dislike sinks with partitions. Give me a really big one where I can put In a proper stock pot – otherwise where do you have space to do any washing at all!
