Best of Salvage 2014 #6 IKEA Butcher Block Cabinet

Well this is the project that got me using power tools. I’m a power tool chicken and I had to cut the back trim off the cabinet to attach the IKEA butcher block. It was a successful hack- the butcher block only had to be trimmed to fit the top of the cabinet and we screwed it on from underneath. The result was tons more workable countertop space in a small galley kitchen. The salvage grade for this project is an A- because I’m still working on how to polish the butcher block and the cost was a little high with $90 for the IKEA butcher block. But overall it is a great polished finish to the kitchen space.
