This wood slab kitchen island was one of my biggest woodworking projects to date. It was also my first kitchen island/woo countertop project! Made from a single piece of locally salvaged Black Walnut and the voids filled with jet black epoxy resin. This slab started out at nine feet long and over five feet wide. Rough cut by me and the final shape was precision cut by a CNC. I even decided to deliver this one personally and help with the installation. Let me know if you have any questions about the build!

Genius! Way out of my league, though. This is like when you see a beautiful girl on the street, adorable, a figure to die for and you ask yourself, what are my chances? None, obviously. Same here. You have to be an artist to turn this level of craftsmanship out. Hey, I can do a wooden box! Seriously, this is a great video. I like the calm demeanor of the narrator (creator)

Not wood in my kitchen (because where I live beautiful granite is dirt cheap) but wood everywhere else. You've inspired me to go look at a vendor of large wood tables/furniture but what holds me back from buying is that processes for best keeping woods from degrading (rapidly) are not practiced. Woods here (Brazil) tend to dry and crack and I need to find ways to prevent that. Your finish is oil, right? Any recommendations for what that finish should be?

I had wood butcherblock countertops when I lived in Germany ... bit of a pain, but not excessively so. They look great and I enjoyed them. However, I wouldn't pay to install them in a kitchen remodel/build because of the drawbacks ... but wouldn't pull them if they were there.

I would do wood on an island without a sink. Heat damage can be managed with trivets, silicone pads, etc. There is no way to keep water in a sink, plus undermount leaves a problematic edge that is basically "in" the sink. Also, beautiful countertop! Keep narrating, YT videos with music can be annoying if the volume isn't perfect.

No wood countertops. Had ‘em. Can’t get ‘em wet or they turn black. Can’t put hot pots or pans on them. Basically, you can’t use them like a countertop is meant to be used without causing damage.

The heat from the gas stove will dry out and split this drying certain times of the year. They have to monitor the humidity 30-50% in the home and I would be weary of running all 4 burners at once as the heat will transfer to the wood and split it. They need to turn on the stove let it run then test the temp of the surface of the wood. If it gets to high they may consider putting some sort of heat shield next to the over on the wood when they use it. I am a wood flooring inspector this is the same problem people have when they want to run the wood right up to the fire place without the tile in front of it. It dries and splits from the heat.
