Custom Butcher Block
I frequented this forum 3 years or so ago when I was doing my kitchen and found it to be tremendously helpful. It must be all new people who post now, because god help them if anyone is still working on theirs 3 years later, lol. I had always meant to come back though and share a wonderful craftsman I found in Wisconsin to make me a butcher block. I found him on Etsy, and although he no longer appears to sell them there, he does on a his website. He made it to fit the exact size space I wanted to use it on and I love it! I The workmanship is wonderful and I believe it will last me forever. Mine is made of Cherry with Walnut ends. Hope you all love your kitchens when you are done, it really is worth all the pain, lol!
