This is my first attempt at a cutting board. I had some time on my hands while I waited on supplies for my coffee table project and I’d seen so many of these cutting boards online that I decided to throw one together. I had no idea how time consuming these things are! I used what I had on hand, I had to laminate the padauk together to get a thicker board and the maple I had was spalted inside so the board has a little more colour than most. I finished it with the salad bowl and cutting board finish from Lee Valley…as I understand, it’s basically bee’s wax and mineral oil.
In the time since I made this board, it’s gotten a lot of sun in our kitchen. The Padauk has toned down to a very deep purple. The Maple is also a deeper tone. This is shown in picture 3.
