Delivered Hard Maple Butcher Block Island Top to “The Fan”

We delivered and installed a 60″ x 40″ hard maple butcher block island top to a home under renovation in “The Fan” area of Richmond.
These tops are a labor-intensive operation in our shop.  The top started out as three rough 10′ x 18″ x 2.5″ boards.  We use our coarse table saw to rip them into 2.5″ x 2.5″ slats, followed by finer ripping on our finish table saw, followed by edging and planing all four side of the 26 slats.  Each slat is individually glued to make four 11″ wide segments, followed by planing then gluing the four segments, followed by cutting the ends and sanding top and bottom.
The customer was happy with the top.  The photo below is the top before adding oil treatment.
