Butcherblock Farmhouse Table and Benches

My parents needed a table for their newly expanded dining room at our cabin. I love the look of butcher-block, and wondered how I could design a table with the thick chunky look. I decided on using 4x4's for the majority of the build. This project took me a while to complete because in the middle of it, I twisted my ankle while lifting the table! Ha, building can cause some damage. Although, the ankle did slow me down, I was still able to deliver the table and benches to the cabin in time to give it to them for their anniversary present.
