Build Your Own Butcher Block Countertop Customize
Build Your Own Butcher Block Countertop – Butcher block countertops are a popular choice for multi-surface kitchens. Butcher block is a great option for durability and flexibility. You can place pans on the counter table without incurring damage. It can also act as a large surface for the display of dough and pastries, much like a wood cut or pastry board.
You can use butcher’s block instead of an existing countertop or as a cover for a kitchen island. Measure existing countertops for length and depth. You will cut your maple into strips of 1 by 2 inches to the desired length, with the section 1 inch up for installation. Buy enough wood to meet the dimensions of your deck. You can tear out your old countertop and place the butcher block in the cabinet frame or place the build your own butcher block countertop.
Cut enough pieces to achieve the depth you need for your counters. You will have to add a quarter inch to the width of each piece to allow sanding after mounting the build your own butcher block countertop. Cut a plywood support board a quarter of an inch shorter than your desired finished dimensions in length and depth. Place the board between your open clamps on a flat surface with the clamps facing up. You will not put your butcher block to this piece; It’s just for a flat surface to ride on.
