When moving the butcher block, we discovered a piece of it that came out accidentally. Turns out, this piece happened to be exactly the width of our new kitchen counter. So, we removed the piece of wood from its former home, the butcher block, and moved it to its new home—the kitchen counter.
It was an unexpected find, and we were happy to take it from one piece of furniture and use it as a functioning part of our kitchen.
The lesson we learned here? When on the hunt for a specific item (in this case, a large cutting board for the kitchen), don't forget to turn over every rock before buying something new.
