After this project :
I had some leftovers , so I made one more cutting board.
I made these cutting boards for sale if somebody is interested.
Finished with mineral oil mixed with melted paraffin wax and applied in very hot sauna.

This is a nice board and great use of offcuts as well. So often we save these intending to use them in some future project that never seems to come along. But you managed to “get rid” of some of yours while creating a project that is not only gorgeous but uniquely designed as well.

Nice job.

I like it. What do you use for adhesive when you do the glue up?

Wow- great cutting board. The problem with that board is it is waaayyyy too nice to use.
Looks very labor intensive. How long does it take you to make one like this.

Thanks for posting

This is a beautiful board …..I certainly couldn’t cut anything on it….The grain flow is incredible and the finish is awesome…..And what is the price tag going to be ?

Wow these boards get harder and harder to copy. I’m just trying to glue one up now and I have spend a great deal of time just on the fixture for the glue up. I really admire the creativity of the design, than you have to make sawdust and then figure a way to glue it up. This is a lot of time and I would have a hard time selling something like this for only $95.00.
Thanks for sharing.

In Estonia $ have slightly different value.
$95.00 is 1/8 of my monthly income.

And keep watching me , I have 2 different boards in progress (I hop 1 will be from hexagon blocks) .

$95 surely wouldn’t be enough to get for such a wonderful piece here in Massachusetts USA . I know what you mean though …you can’t charge more than the market will bear if you want to sell something . Keep up the great work !
