    I just found out that a speed square isn’t called a "triangle thingy", one day I’ll try this, thanks Lowes.

  5. Augustine Rhodes on August 26, 2020 at 4:11 am

  8. MR. G on August 26, 2020 at 4:15 am

    I’m in the process of remodeling my kitchen I did all the work myself new cabinets and painting and a beautiful backsplash. I was going to install the butcher block countertops myself but after watching his video h*** no this is like Chinese algebra I think I’ll pay someone to do that part I think it’s worth it . My opinion I will definitely destroy the butcher block and spend too much money on the tools and time it’s just better to pay so want to do it it would probably take me weeks when I can have a done in one day by a professional but thanks for the video

  9. Havoc Maverick on August 26, 2020 at 4:16 am

    One of these was in the house I bought. It is not holding up very well. It has rott mold and is coming apart and warping. I do not recommend

  10. Sandi Virk on August 26, 2020 at 4:16 am

    Beautiful. Way more than I’m capable of handling but I sure admire your work.

  11. Jaime Peralez on August 26, 2020 at 4:17 am

    What kind of “ waterproof Tung Oil sealant” did you use? I checked Lowe’s website and there’s no such thing there’s only “tung oil” which is not waterproof

  12. david r Majka on August 26, 2020 at 4:19 am

    why was the joints not glue?

  13. Francis Curran on August 26, 2020 at 4:21 am

  14. Michael Moyo on August 26, 2020 at 4:22 am

  27. Sara Brown on August 26, 2020 at 4:35 am

    We put epoxy on our butchers block to seal it and add an amazing glass like shine. It’s better than using any kind of oil or polyurethane

  28. LveMlike on August 26, 2020 at 4:36 am

    That’s my kitchen right there!

  29. joe dee on August 26, 2020 at 4:37 am

    what was used for the backsplash ?

  30. Conqwiztadore22 on August 26, 2020 at 4:37 am

    Butt joints are ugly

  31. RumbleLab on August 26, 2020 at 4:43 am

    1:44 : "Be sure we seal within 48 hours of unwrapping it"

    Too bad every block in the store has torn shrink wrap…

  32. Jeffrey Walker on August 26, 2020 at 4:44 am

    please add the sealant you used to the more section, sounded like water proof tonuge sealant?

  33. Edwin Hernandez on August 26, 2020 at 4:45 am

    Thanks for everything I’ve learned in these 11:42 seconds. I’ll be on my way to Home Depot to buy everything I need now.

  34. LAZYLOS61 on August 26, 2020 at 4:46 am

    Dis you buy the island board and cut it to size to also make the back splash. I ask this because there Only two different sizes. 25” deep and 32” deep. Most cabinet are 24” deep leaving 1” over hang. I can see you buying the 32” deep island and cut to size (25” for counter top and 7” of extra for what ever back slash height is desired. I am correct or did you buy a 2×4 birch wood and used that.

  35. Bardia Ghajari on August 26, 2020 at 4:47 am

  42. John McDermott on August 26, 2020 at 4:54 am

    Garbage disposal machine?? What about staining the wood prior to sealing??

  43. Erick Pargas on August 26, 2020 at 4:57 am

    9:12 what is the material that they put at the end to the butcher block?

  44. J. Montrice on August 26, 2020 at 4:59 am

    Don’t they have people for this??

  45. Joni English on August 26, 2020 at 4:59 am

    DRAIN Pipes does it Matter BLACK ABS or White pvc ? does it matter

  46. Matthew Bauman on August 26, 2020 at 5:01 am

    Make sure your drain wasn’t reverse graded like that drain was. Always make sure there is a 1/4 inch grade toward the drain.

  47. Miles J. on August 26, 2020 at 5:02 am

    "…and do it right"

    not end grain.

    Ok

  48. Meliton Rodriguez on August 26, 2020 at 5:02 am

    Where’s the clip where u said there two types of cuts u showed one where’s the other one or is it in another video…
    Thank you for a few tips

  49. Philip Slawson on August 26, 2020 at 5:02 am

    Two serious errors: Never overhang the counter over the sink as it’s almost impossible to clean underneath the edge which allows bacteria to grow. Also, that tape will not stop the hot, damp air present when you open the dishwasher from flowing back under the countertop, potentially allowing warpage or bacterial activity. Better to use an insulating blanket that covers all of the top of the dishwasher. I believe IKEA sells them cheaply.

  50. STeeLo205 ImDatRapper on August 26, 2020 at 5:05 am

    Why didnt they just use one long custom pc instead of installing it in pieces..
