High Hopes For Butcher Block Table

We had been developing a butcher block table for quite some time. While we were putting the finishing touches on the design, a client contacted us looking for one. We showed her the design and she loved it, but wanted a few personal touches added. We specialize in custom woodwork, so we simply said “No problem!”.  We worked with her to modify the design to incorporate a wine rack and some side braces to support books on the lower shelf. We have high hopes for this design in the local Ottawa market. Look for it when we launch our store in 2015.

It features a 4″ maple end grain top with a liquid catching channel. This end grain top is the most knife friendly top we can make, allowing the knife blade to stay sharper longer. The table also features stainless steel handles that are stylish on their own, but can hold dish towels as well. The drawer is made from Russian birch plywood and features dovetailed sides and self closing, soft close drawer slides that are quiet and smooth. We also included a custom knife block that fits seamlessly into the drawer. Maintenance is simply a matter of wiping the block with mineral oil once a month, or as needed. The top can be refinished as often and as many times as you wish. With 4 inches of maple on the top, it won’t be wearing down in my lifetime.

We are very proud of this project and will be posting photos of our own design any day now. We will also be releasing a line of butcher blocks, cutting boards, and miscellaneous other kitchen wares. Not only are they top quality, but they are made locally and cost less than the ones imported from the United States.
