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.
