 Butcher Block 1

The Butcher Block Computer Table

This solid computer table takes the form of a butcher's cutting block with end grain wood forming the entire top. It is not really a completely solid block of wood but a six inch thick top with a skirt of wood around the front and two sides. Plywood splines strengthen the top internally and steal rods brace it front-to-back.

It is made from very short pieces of 2-by-4 lumber and is designed to be made from recycled lumber. This may be scraps from housing construction, salvage from pallets, or framing timbers from a house being taken down. It does however take a lot of scrap to build this desk.

If you want a solid, massive desk but don't have $5000 for the top-of-the-line model, then maybe this desk is for you. It could also could be made in a look-down configuration or even a monitor-under-glass version.
