I just finished making my first cutting board. I’ve always wanted to make one but was intimidated by all the work. During this project I learned to router, created a router sled, and learned to use a 10” planer.
I wanted to keep the cost low so instead of going out and buying boards, I bought an antique mahogony table that someone was selling for $30 to make the dark brown wood. The lighter wood came from my bed frame that I grew up in that my parents had stored in there basement. I think it was maple.
It measures 15” x 24” and is 2” thick. There is a 1/2” bevel around the top edge. I rubbed it in mineral oil and once that had absorbed, I rubbed it in a beeswax mixture(1part beeswax:4 parts mineral oil). It has felt feet on the bottom.
Hope you like it.
