Beautiful work. Not sure what the price is, but I'm guessing it's pretty high. If I ever got something like that, I'd seriously consider some mag blocks around the sides for knife display . . .

The thickness of the block makes a huge difference in price. I haven't added it up, but I'm guessing this thing has about a $1k in raw lumber in it. Mortise and tenon joinery for the base, dovetailed drawer in the center, two pull-out walnut cutting boards (1 on each side). This was a fun, tricky project.

Wow, 16/4!! I would guess that would take 6-7 years to air dry down to a stable moisture content, no? Would love to learn more.
