Here is another couple of my chopping boards. This time it has a brick wall pattern and is made of white oak and I think Mahogany… Still not sure what wood is it? Some time ago I’ve bought lots of reclaimed flooring boards but the woman I bought it from wasn’t sure what kind of wood was it. If you have any idea what it is please let me know. Anyway it took a while to finish it due to the fact that I was expanding my workshop (new conservatory) so for few months I wasn’t doing any woodworking at all. large board took few hours of sanding due to lack of drum sander (next project to build) finished with soaking in mineral oil and then treated with mixture of clarified beeswax and mineral oil – some call it “choppingboard butter”. the small board is only long grain and is made out of a waste. due to the tear out underneath whilst cross cutting I have almost binned few strips but then I thought it still can be a little board for hot pots etc… hope you like it.
