Mesquite end grain counter top chop block.

35.25” x 17.25” x 2.5”

I went through 2 and a half huge slabs to finish up with this piece. Tight bond II glue, mineral oil soaking then a mix of beeswax and oil to finish the seal. My drum sander robots helps out plenty!

Good looking use of mesquite. One of these days I am going to come up with a way to safely allow me to use it again. Even cutting it by hand sets off my allergies.
Question, do you find TB II holds up in a kitchen environment? I went through a bottle of 3 and 2 is easier to use for me at least.

Thanks John. TBII has worked so far. I haven’t used the other two.

I use III only on cutting boards being its water proof vrs II being water resistant. I theory your not suppose to get end grain boards real wet so II should work.
Nice board and flow, boy thats alot of feet on the bottom.
