I love the convenience of having tons of recipes right at my fingertips with the internet and electronic texts. What I don’t like is the idea of my pricey device lying on the counter where all kinds of destructive forces are at work.

Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust made this gorgeous checkerboard butcher block from maple and oak as a Christmas gift. The hardwood board is finished with a special butcher block oil so it’s completely food safe. It turned out so beautifully, Kristen ended up making two more!
When good friends of Jen from House of Wood bought their first home, she built them this workbench-style console following plans from Ana White. The couple plans to use the console as a coffee bar in their breakfast nook. Talk about one awesome housewarming gift! The Pottery Barn inspiration comes close to the $2000 mark, while Jen built hers for only $65!
