Walnut Butcher Block Cart
Over the years, us woodworkers accumulate tons
of precious scrap. This is particularly true of walnut which I think is
the planet's most marvelous material. When my mom asked me to build her
a cart to set her "new-fangled" microwave on, I looked at my
scrap pile and said no problem.
As you can see from the photo below, the grain
runs up and down similar to more traditional butcher blocks. Although walnut
is not very suitable for real cutting applications (gasp) building this
from walnut sure helped straighten up my shop.
I'm finished here.
