Butcher Block | New Yankee Workshop
Norm's version of the indispensable kitchen staple, the butcher block, features a hard endgrain maple top instead of the usual parallel grain.
In Norm's English country version of this kitchen staple, the base is sturdy poplar. Norm demonstrates how to cut the endgrain carefully, thus avoiding excess sanding of this tough wood.
