Just a generation or so ago, butcher blocks were as common in kitchens
as ice boxes and wood- fired stoves. But, in the 40's, 50's and
60's, modern kitchens started to get smaller. Out of necessity,
these big, bulky blocks were replaced by space-saving, countertop
cutting boards. And although today's newer homes seem to be getting
larger and larger (many have kitchens with enough space to park
the family sport utility vehicle), there are still a lot of folks
living in older homes with limited space. If this describes your
kitchen, this special Table is for you.
The simple design of this Table returns the classic butcher block
to the kitchen...and gives today's most common, high-tech appliance
-- the microwave oven -- a convenient, out-of-the-way place of its
own. Or, if you prefer, you can build your table with our "storage
option" which includes a slide-out drawer and "cubbyholes" for cookbooks,
dishes, small appliances, etc.
Add casters to create a convenient, portable cutting surface, extra
counter space or even a roll-around patio barbecue cart. Double
or triple the size of the top and add an extra set of center support
legs to turn it into a garden cart or even an extra workbench for
the shop. The modifications and applications are limited only by
