Below is the messy beginnings of the butcher block top to a coffee table. The first picture shows the scrap lumber that I’m using for the top. It’s great to see it find another home other than more iPad styluses (although I’m sure there will be a few pieces leftover for me to throw on the lathe). The work on the top starts by getting the pieces all to a common thickness and length (I don’t care about the other dimensions at this point). The first pass of this work is shown in the second picture where the pieces are laid out prior to glue up. Hopefully I can get the initial glue up completed before calling it a day today.
