A rugged butcher block work bench would make a functional kitchen island, counter or wine and cheese tasting table.
The iron vise clamp is embossed "W.C. Toles, Chicago, Pat Oct 20 1884," and would be nice for cracking walnuts. The lower level of the top has curly grain on this American made solid maple antique furniture.
An excellent finish preserves lots of stains and mars for antique character
Measurements are 54" long, 28" wide (excluding clamp) and 33 1/2" tall
