    Real butcher block is solid wood, thick, the top is hollow which is typical hype from HSN. It is just a metal frame with cheap plastic casters. It will look old fast.

    The question is whether you want a light weight foldaway island cart. What other options are there? If it were stainless it would cost more and if it had a thick block on top it would weigh substantially more.

    I'm guessing it would take a fair # of years before you cut through the surface too far but if you did, how hard is it to get a replacement piece of wood and glue or screw it on? Not hard at all if you have a lumber yard or decent hardware superstore nearby.

    #5 I think then it might be easier to purchase ALL the raw materials and find a local welding shop to make your frame as well.

    Suppose its a matter of instant gratification or not... Resist instant grat! Be Handy!

    I object to the hype on HSN and the sales pitches. Its not butcher block which is end up pieces glued together and is far superior to a cutting board less than an inch thick.

    I suspect that cutting a rectangular replacement piece of wood, then sanding, attaching, and oiling is about two orders of magnitude faster and easier than designing, cutting, forming, then welding, grinding, cleaning, priming, and painting a DIY steel frame PLUS making the top.

    Plus when you're done it would probably weigh more when the point of the product is that the light weight makes it manageable in the kitchen.
