My first post so here goes:
First I want to thank everyone on LJs for all of the inspiration, information and just plain fun…Being new to woodworking, I can’t imagine a better place to hang out. A special thanks to Marc for the cutting board videos.
What a great way to hone your skills. I had never done glue ups before seeing the videos.
I’ve completed a couple of projects before this one but its the first that I’ve milled the lumber from rough stock. Its maple and purpleheart. I’ve finished w/ shellac and Marc’s favorite finish for the cutting board ends. I liked the color and finish better than just mineral oil on the ends.
Also, this is first project with mortise and tenon joints. I want to do more so I can really master the technique.
The basic design was from the free plans on the Fine Woodworking site. I’m still debating if I’ll put the drawers on the bottom or not. If I do…I’ll post some more pics
