    Seems to have a metal edge around it -- what's up with that? And how would you give it a thorough cleaning?

    I think it's a concrete countertop with an area to recess the end-grain board in it.

    I think its a metal molding around the outside of it.

    Now that I've been thinking about it for a few more seconds, I'm thinking I may cut the hole large enough to put a small hotel pan in it. That way I can just pick up the pan and throw the trash away.

    I use very basic equipment - a contractor saw, manual clamps, a router, but I have an access to a jointer and a wide belt sander, which helps. I am on a lookout for a better table saw though. It ain't fun cutting 2" thick boards with a light-weight saw.

    I have all the tools to make it except for the drum sander. I was going to get a drum sander but I used the money to buy the grinder instead. The problem is that I don't have the time or the focus to finish my projects.

    That is the problem. I too have many ideas but not enough time for all. Renting an access to wide-belt sander is much more economical than buying a drum sander. Finding a shop that would rent time on a wide belt sander is harder. For me it was the biggest attraction moving into my present time workshop. The upstairs is a stair building business.

    Hole saw:

    Rough it out with the hole saw, then hand finish with file/paper should get you pretty good results.

    I have a kitchen island cart (which I am now using as a computer desk) that has a IKEA cutting board counter top. $80 for a 49 1/2" x 25 5/8" board. It isn't end grain, but I don't cut on much. Then I used some extra DOM tubing I had for legs and shelf, and put some casters on it.

    I was thinking 6" hole in diameter. Plus the counter top would be about 2.5-3" so a hole saw might not be up for the task. For thinner boards it should work.

    You can get 6" hole saws. And you can drill from both sides using the pilot drill hole to align them. Or if you couldn't get a 6", you could drill two 3-4" or holes next to each other and cut out the left over material between them to make a 6-8" long oval opening.
