Klassy Butcherblock Tops for Klubbo Tables





klubbo1

Materials: Klubbo Nesting Table set; John Boos maple butcher block tops

Description: IKEA’s Klubbo nesting tables have a very classy look – except for the tops, which are very light weight, and frankly look pretty cheap. At IKEA I bought the white Klubbo table set ($10 less than the black). At my hardwood store I also bought two John Boos solid maple cutting board tops as close to the correct size as possible. (Definitely not cheap!)

I assembled both table bases without the IKEA tops. Using a table saw, a trim router and a sander I cut the new maple tops to size, rounded the edges and sanded them. I finished them with satin wipe-on poly. Then I marked the locations for the screws on the undersides, pre-drilled pilot holes, and fastened them to the bases with screws.

Very solid and look great!

    You could also purchase the butcher block counter from ikea, and do the same. You’d have lots of extra, but I’m sure you’d find a cool way to use it.
