Starting to make these for gifts this Christmas.
Made with Hard Maple, Cherry and Mahagony.
Used the Mineral oil and then the oil & bees wax to finish them.

Just started my first cutting board today. Hope it turns out at least half as good as yours have!

ajw1978. Thanks for the comment!
There are many boards being shown on this site and are all quite impressive.
I just started making these about 3 weeks ago.
Most will be for gifts for Christmas, but have actually sold some to a few friends who took a look and got one for their wives.
They aren’t really very hard to make. It just takes some time in the glue-ups and then it takes about 5 days of coating them with the mineral oil and then the oil & bees wax.
Since I work full time, I can only make these on my off time, which isn’t that much time.
Because of work, it usually takes me about 2 weeks to make the board, so I made 3 at a time ahd then did all the sanding at once then the mineral oil.
Good luck on your efforts. I am sure your boards will look great!
