“I purchased an oak butcher-block top from Lumber Liquidators for 200 bucks to use as the top,” Charles says. He screwed it on from the bottom to keep the top surface smooth, and he attached a piece along the back to act as a backsplash.
“After a few coats of polyurethane it looks too good to use!” Charles adds. “Thanks for the design.”
