My pastor’s wife is our church piano player, a great lady and friend and I have been wanting to give her something besides the hard time that I usually give her. I saw this cutting board by JL7 and I decided that this would be a great gift for her. I forgot to get a picture of it with finish on it so you’ll just have to take my word that I put finish on it. I used a butcher block finish a mixture of mineral oil, carnauba wax, and bee’s wax. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Randy, I hope so she likes to avoid clutter and said she was not going to actually use it.

Excellent job, Bob! Looks like you used walnut & maple. The solid part looks like end-grain walnut; correct? Is the entire board end-grain?

I love it, but you know , she probably won’t use it as a cutting board, I see it hanging on the wall.

Thanks all, it is made of walnut and maple. She says she loves it and I hope she does. I too think that it will end up on a wall, she already said she would not use it for a cutting board.
