Footed Cutting Board

A butcher board scrap becomes a fun footed cutting board.

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 used E6000 (affiliate link) to glue the feet to the bottom of the butcher block...

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

You can see the gray color streaks the vinegar solution  created in the different woods giving it an aged look. 

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

This was a great use for this butcher block scrap.

It makes a great pedestal at the dining table too!
