Yes I know it’s another cutting board, but it’s something I’ve completed and that’s quite an accomplishment considering the last 8 months. This was the project I was working on when the truck went through and trashed my entire shop. Since then I’ve started to rebuild but have been hampered by a torn tendon in the left arm with surgical repair and now the right arm has the same problem with surgery within the next two weeks! You can see I still haven’t replaced the temporary doors with the new ones I’ve built. I just don’t have much use out of my arms right now without a great deal of pain.
I enjoyed the project. For Father’s Day, all I asked for was my youngest daughter to join me in the shop. Together we milled the blanks and did all the glue ups. I’ve been sanding a little at a time ever since. Hard Maple and Purple Heart with a mineral oil finish. Next time, I’ll use a varnish/mineral oil combo or wax/oil. Couldn’t find Salad Bowl Finish locally. Didn’t want to order online as I was wanted to give this as a present this weekend. Mommy gets the cutting board this afternoon when they return from a short trip to PA.
“June” looks interested but she really wants a ride in the truck. She’s not a regular in the shop just yet.
