Made this in time to carve a joint of lamb on it at Easter. Unfortunately, with only 2 coats of mineral oil the board needed washing afterwards as the fat from the lamb had began to soak in. Bad idea as next morning the board had warped badly and developed a 4” long crack !! After letting it dry out for a week or so I sanded it back, filled the crack with epoxy and refinished with 4 coats of Liberon Finishing Oil. Turned out much nicer second time around :)
The Wood is spalted beech with two thin stripes of cherry and the board measures a far too large 24 inches x 19 inches (60×48cn).
