Butcher Block

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Butcher Blockim an admitted amateur. i built a butcher block, not edge grain as i dont have a table saw. in fact, i escaped the city during the pandemic and was holed up at my inlaws- so i built this with a sawzall and a drill sander. it took forever. i had very few tools and wood selections.here's some pre-jointed pine (green and blonde) that had 90' sharp edges.i only had one clamp. so one clamp it is!i spent some time lining up the grains.then, lots and lots of sanding. hours. and softening the edges. you can see i dont have a planer as it's far from straight.i'm no good with a handheld router, so there are some burns and messy handles.then some mineral oil and a waxing.this has been one of my best projects, it came out so much better than i thought. and i shouldnt have used soft pine, but it's held up, and again, it's all i had!

They had a nice figure and I figured why not. So I hand cut a dovetail joint on one side and hand cut a box joint on the other. After all it's just a straight walled dovetail.
Then re-sawed a few other pieces and ran a square blade through some for the coasters and there it is. Nothing wasted.
