Who doesn’t love a classic butcher block countertop. I am not talking about the 1980’s Formica version, but a classic, 1″ – 2″ thick butcher block counter top.
You could probably figure out how to build this one yourself, but a plan is always helpful. If you are going to build your own butcher block, please take a look at the plan link below. Once reviewed, you will be in a much better place to build your own version.
This is the inexpensive (cough: cheap) way to go. The material is common lumber and does not require a lot of gluing and sanding (a little). The real trick to making this look like a traditional butcher block is in the finish (stain).
One note: Please be sure to use a “food safe” finish on your own butcher block.
