Our butcher block counter tops came in 8 foot and 12 foot lengths. One side of our kitchen is 8 feet 3 inches. Two years ago when we chopped off the extra I got the idea to make a kitchen cart. This week the project was finished. It features wheels on two legs for easy movement when we want it to move; rails to hold our recycle bin; and some extra height for my comfort. The scrap as a result of cutting down the butcher block was turned into cutting boards.
