End Grain – Take 1

Leave a comment

Finally almost time to call the butcher block coffee table done. Finished all sanding and got a first coat of finish on the table. The picture is a close up of the end grain after the first coat of finish. Please note that this is actually end grain butcher block as opposed to all of those companies advertising their tops as butcher block (but they don’t bother to expose the end grain). It can still look good that way, but it looks more like a bowling alley lane than a butcher’s block. The proper way should have the end grain exposed as it is easier on the butcher’s knives.
