    Here is a butcher block that I made for someone out of Maple, Mahogany, and Walnut. This one took longer than I thought it would. The boards were twisting quite a bit when I was cutting them out to their rough size. So I had to make sure to flatten one side for each of them, then plane them to final thickness. Once I got that down, then I was able to square them up on the table saw, clean up the edges, then glued them together.

    Hi I am a home woodworker based in Northern Ireland and I have learned so much from Colin Knecht's Utube presentations. I do not have the resources to buy major machines and I have built a table saw and router table. Now I have some pallet boards and I needed a planer to clean and flatten them. I have built a six foot jig base on which the board is clamped with cams to accomodate small bows and twists. The bridge or carrier for the router runs above the jig to mill the surfsace. It is very good in cleaning and flattening but so very dirty. About 80% of the dust and chips are shot all round my workshop. I have now taken measures to contain the problem. I bought several strips if draft excluding brushes. It was tricky getting the brush strips in the right position and avoiding the guiding surfaces. I have done it and now I retain about 80% of the dust and chips. I shall attempt to post some photos in a separate post but this may take some time as computer technology is required. Regards Colin Farrier

    I was thinking something more like this. With maybe 2 small drawers (around 4.75" high)

    Only made of walnut where the legs completely deattach and reattach without any wear on the wood.

    Perhaps with an all metal larger beefy version of several of the connections in the attached picture
