Thanks guys I needed samples from this 14' long Walnut Edge Grain Custom Plank.


1/2" Radius top edge and 1/8" Radius bottom and 4 Verticals.




Buffing Block!


Adam Rimon and Jose installed their own block.

The hardest install, even I made a Free Template, the walls and alcove is never straight.
Only off by an 1/8" and the block did not fit the first time.

Also there was 2 Blocks, and 1 for the island in the kitchen!

The left side wall is missing the filler up to the cabinet.

The plywood will be removed and the legs will be attached to the 42" x 42" x 2.25" Walnut EDGE Grain California Butcher Block, both Oiled with Howard's.
