Thank you so much!
Thanks so much! I've assembled all of the angles and dimensions for you in the plans, linked above.
Thank you! I like the look of dowel joinery, so I guess that's why I picked that method. I also didnt want the screws to be showing from the inside. But yes, you could totally screw from the inside if you like! Gluing might be enough alone but it is such a large joint that I wanted the extra strength.
I built two chairs. Took me a weekend to make the first one as I had to figure out all of the angles and how I wanted it all to come together. Then i built the second one in one day.
I agree. The plans take so much of the guesswork out for you. Thanks!
Thank you! The plans are a wonderful way to support me so I can keep making more. I greatly appreciate it :) The cushions were made by my talented mom, but I know that upholstery companies can also make them. I've also linked to some store bought cushions.
Thanks so much!

Thanks! I hope you try it!
Oh no. I'll fix that now. Thank you so much for telling me!
Hey Scott. I spent just under $100 on the materials. Super happy with the price!
Definitely an option. I live in a more humid environment so I wanted air circulation.
That sounds really cool!

I agree. The glass would be a wonderful addition. And I also think that the legs alone would be fine to support that extra weight. They're very sturdy. Thanks so much!
Thanks! It actually is just resting on the legs. The table top is heavy and doesn't move at all. But you could certainly fasten the two together if you wanted to.
Thanks so much!

It's all personal preference. You could easily add in recessed areas before pouring the concrete. I personally didn't because I did not want to be stuck with one bowl size, and my bowls have grips on the bottom to not slip. This works well for us. But again, do what works best for you!

It is, if it is connected to an external monitor and keyboard.
Thanks! It is pretty sturdy. And I think a lot of that is thanks to the weighted metal bottom. I also built mine to be a little snug, and I keep it at the back of my desk against the wall.
Thanks so much :)
Thanks so much! And oh, those cabinets. They drive me crazy. The pink must've just been the lighting. They are really a yellowish stain that was here when we bought the house, and they totally clash with the wood I've installed (floor and counters). They're on my long list to change.
I'm so glad to know it helps. Thanks!
Thanks so much! And haha, yep. Cork yoga block. I've got my eye on making something wooden in the future. But until then, it's worked well!
Wonderful! I'm so glad you were inspired! I use mine everyday and it works so well. You can adapt it to fit whatever laptop width you have. Have fun with the build!

That's great! This little guy has held up beautifully. So glad I could inspire you to try a smaller project with concrete.
Thank you! I do think these would work on older cabinets. You might have to shim some, but that's no big deal. We contemplated replacing the area around our sink, but ended up splurging for quartz. I'm glad we did because we don't have to worry much about water. But honestly if you put lots of coats of Waterlox on, you'd probably be okay there. These butcher block counters that I did are in a high use area, next to the stove and fridge, and they've held up so well. I'd feel pretty good around the sink after seeing how well they've done. But again, it all has to do with how well you seal them and how quick you are to clean up water around the sink.
Thanks so much! I don't believe Waterlox is food safe, but I'm not positive. We just don't put food directly on them. We use a cutting board, etc. I'm super happy with how the finish has held up after a year.
Great advice. I've since learned this. Thankfully no tear out on this counter but I wish I'd known that earlier. Thanks so much!
We've had these counters for just over a year now and I'm so happy to report that they've held up incredibly well to tons of use. There are a few small dents here and there, but hardly noticeable. I'm super happy with the finish too. No water damage at all. Although I'm sure you'd be great with your finish option as well.
Great ideas. I definitely would have considered a miter cut if I had joining pieces. I'd love to see the finished counters when you are done! And thanks :)
Thanks! And yep, water everywhere.
Nope! The base is big enough to completely support it.
Mine too! She'd just mow it over trying to get that last crumb haha. Not anymore. Thanks!

Thank you so much :)
I'm not completely positive, but I think they are oak.
Wow that's such a nice compliment! Thank you :)
Thank you so much! This butcher block was the "Numerar" line. At :19 in the video there is a shot of the label if that helps!
