I was about ready to pull the trigger on this MMB butcher block, size 30" x 36" x 16"D:
My husband commented that it would look silly in our house because the butcher block cannot be placed right next to the kitchen sink or the cooktop. He also thinks that since it won't be in a convenient location, I probably won't use it often to justify the purchase.
I am thinking that since we will do a kitchen remodel in 5 years or so, we can temporarily place the butcher block near our dining table, and use it as a serving table and also as an (occasional) work surface for making noodles, dumplings, etc.
What do you think? I attached the layout of our kitchen/ dining area. I plan to put the butcher block in the nook (in the top left corner of the layout), near our 42" round dining table.
