This table is the real deal. The end-grain top is designed to take the blows and slices from your finest knives without damaging them.
On the south side of the city I live in, there’s an Old-World grocery store that still sells a full line of products that come from the Italian cooking tradition. It’s a wonderful place to visit and purchase spices, pasta, and homemade sausage. In the aisle just outside the meat counter is a butcher block table that I’m pretty sure is older than me. It’s been retired from the daily duties that a butcher requires, but could easily be called back into service at any time. This butcher block table is built in the same spirit as that old butcher block that I saw in the store. This new version truly qualifies as an heirloom project. It will easily provide generations of service and assistance in any kitchen.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
