Butcher block workbench – surface uses thin strips of wood attached with glue like the top of a table, island or counter. The grain and color changes from piece to piece, giving the wood the look of texture. Manufacturers often use maple because it holds well when cut into smaller pieces and offers the different colors that consumers want. Building a butcher block square block itself allows you to customize it to suit your needs. Cover the work area with a piece of wax paper. Cut the paper of the same size you want for the finishing bench.
Apply a thin, even layer of wood glue to the wax paper. Arrange the maple wood planks at the top of the tail. Press the wood together, making sure there are no gaps between the pieces. A layer of planks is suitable for the upper part of the bench. Cover the top of the wood with a second layer of wood glue and a piece of wax paper. Saw the ends carefully with a jigsaw, making the ends smooth and level, as the ends of the top of the bench could be slightly uneven, depending on how the wood was put. Wear goggles to protect eyes from sawdust flying. From the top sand of the wood with a drum sander, once the glue dries. Use a light touch and just sand the rough areas or uneven areas on the butcher block workbench.
Keep rubbing the sander on top, until it has a smooth surface and you have removed any remaining wax paper that will cling to the top.

Adjust the bracket on the butcher block and the ½ inch drill into the block, following the holes in the bracket. Press the bracket against the wood and screw the 2-inch wood screws through the metal bracket and into the butcher block. Attach the bracket to a pre-made table leg.
