Footed Cutting Board

6:00:00 AM

A butcher board scrap...

was perfect!

This scrap of butcher block countertop was the perfect size...

It just needed a little pizzaz!

I cut feet from old table legs... no painting required, they were the perfect color and chippy beauty.

I super glued the feet to the bottom of the butcher block...

Then gave the wood a coat of vinegar/steel wool solution to
darken the wood.

You can see the gray color streaks the vinegar solution 
created in the different woods...

When the vinegar dried I gave the new cutting board
a coat of olive oil to season the dry wood.

A great use for this butcher block scrap 

It makes a great pedestal at the dining table too!

    1. Thanks Joyce! So far so good, one month and counting...

  2. Susan that is a beautiful reuse-repurpose. How great with a big loaf of crusty bread on the table, now you've got me thinking! Thanks

  3. It looks so good, love the little feet, they just make it. I always use mineral oil on my boards, it doesn't get rancid like cooking oils.

  4. Good morning Susan!
    Love this project, that is a perfect use for that butcher block scrap! The little feet really make this piece. Love it as a pedestal on the table.

  5. Excellent! Reminds me to look past the size of some scrap to see what it can be turned into in a smaller state.

    Easter Blessings.
