While the outside appearance shows a 2 foot high block, you can build it with the insides considerably shorter, perhaps 3-4 inches. You'll save a lot of lumber and cost, construction and assembly will be easier, you can hide a multitude of sins, and you don't need a platoon of marines to move it.

Superior Hardwoods has some butcher block countertop type of stuff, and they have a table for $1000. You should check them out, just outside of Missoula south on 93. If you like something there, talk to me before you buy because I maybe be able to get a deal if I purchase it.
