I needed to create a wood detail for a quilt shop in Nebraska and after I finished with all the trim I had a pile of scrap barn wood left over. Instead of using formical for all the countertops I decided to cut the wood pile down to 21/2" strips and make butcher block style countertops with a angle iron frame. Once they are installed I will finish them with a bar top clear coat to make them smooth and detail the distressed look of the wood.
