HouseShots – Butcher’s blocks

Lisa cutting blocks

Lisa spent some time making sawdust in the front yard recently. We had finally decided that the Bungaloft penninsula counter top would be a butcher block surface. Since there was quite a stash of old growth Fir lying around from the demo, that was the obvious choice for material. So we are accumulating boxes of 2 inch blocks to build the slab with. It’s generally really nice tight-grain material that’s hard to come by these days.

We also have a stack of planed planks from the demo awaiting other uses in the remodel.
