Cherry and curly maple. I made it so it would fit through the planer. Then two very shallow passes with the trim router. I had the first coat of mineral oil on it when a buddy posted his first board and almost shamed me into taking it back to the shop to cut some finger ‘dents’ into the ends. I decided to stand by the ‘baby steps’ mantra and finish finishing it. 3 coats of mineral oil and 2 or 3 coats of Howard’s Butcher Block Conditioner.
12” x 17” x 3/4”. The one questionable thing I did on this was turned the maple sideways so that the edge grain is showing (curl is more defined) and the face grain is glued to the edge grain of the cherry. I hope 3/4” is too thin to be concerned about wood movement…right?
Thanks for looking. Any comments, suggestions are appreciated.
By the way, the cherry is some trim that LJ gfadvm gave to hubby and me when he was making room for lumber to be milled on his saw mill. Thanks, Andy!
