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!

I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.

  1. Great looking for sure... will be curious to know how the super glue holds up.

    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.
