After making the dough boards, I had to come up with a couple of other things to give out this past christmass. I decided that cutting boards would be the quickest and easiest to make in volume. (the prior year were boxes, sorry no pictures.) These were made from small pieces of stock I had on hand, hard maple, paduck, purple heart and walnut. I finished them with a couple of heavy coats of walnut oil.

I like! Nice size. I like the one with the padauk between the walnut (on right, second pic).

Very nice. I make these all the time because they are such a good way to use up wood. Yours turned out terrific Greg.

I really like the padauk and the purple heart. The next time I make cutting boards I will try using those species. Are they food safe?

I like the contrasting colors Greg, and am most partial to the one with the large dark pieces. For some reason, it seems more elegant than the other (which is still great).

I wonder what this Christmas will bring?

As far as I have been able to research, all of the woods that I used are food safe, as well as the walnut oil. I really like the finish it leaves, it actualy dries where as mineral oil still seems to remain “damp” which is a problem when working with flour and bread doughs “according to my wife.” Every board I make seems to come out a little different since I just use what I have on hand at the time. I have taken to branding them on the back “forgot to take a picture of that.”

Greg,

Glad these came up on the home page! These are beautiful boards. I like what you said about each one being a little different according to what wood you had on hand at the time.
