I have a few projects that are, well in progress for Christmas, and my wedding anniversary. One of them is the obligatory cutting board, of black walnut and red oak. Finished dimensions are going to be 22” x 16” x 1,25” thick. No handle, but a simple 1” hanger hole in one of the corners is in the design. This is the first time I have ever attempted anything along the sorts of this kind of glue up. So far it looks pretty good. I will need to get it to a shop that has a wide format planer to flatten and thickness it.
I am open for suggestion on the finish, since I honestly have no idea what to put on it. Is Boiled Linseed Oil / wax food safe?
