How to Monogram a Butcher Block

Do you ever have those projects that you say you will do “someday” & then sort of get put off? That is until you find new inspiration to jump right in with both feet. That’s what happened to me with this project. You see – when we were in the beginning stages of building this house, I found this piece of header laying in the scrap pile. I squealed & then asked the hubs to save it for me. So we took it back to our rental & it sat in our garage while we waited for our home. He kept asking me, “what are you going to do with this thing?” I kept telling him that I was going to make it into a butcher block. Well – we just hit our 2 month mark here in our home & the project is complete. I will be sharing how I actually built the butcher block in another post here soon. You see, the thing that sparked my desire to finally get it done was the addition of the Dremel Micro 8050 to my arsenal of tools. So today I am going to share How to Monogram a Butcher Block. It was so FUN & easy – even for this beginner diy-er.

    I am absolutely in LOVE with your blog! I keep seeing you link up at so many parties and always end up clicking on your projects! I love this idea! I am currently building a kitchen island (out of scrap wood and laminate flooring- it is interesting!) and think this will be PERFECT to add some detail to the island! Thanks a billion for sharing, had to pin this, too! :)
