This is a fairly standard design maple and walnut drunken cutting board. The dimensions are 12×12 x 7/8. The finish is butcher block conditioner (mineral oil and waxes). I like the sapwood/heartwood demarcation in the walnut, but I didn’t realize that there were as many worm holes in the finished piece until I did the round-over and the final surfacing. Since the walnut was kiln dried it’s not an issue other than being a “blemish” to me. The customer to whom this sold actually liked how they gave it oven more “character” than some of my other drunken boards.

Drunken is a perfect name and the results are nearly (neglecting the worm holes) perfect!
