I was inspired last week or so by a Lumberjock post that featured a cutting board of this design. Had to give it a try. I can’t find the original posting so my apologies for not attributing the original.
Of course, if I build one of them, I can build two with only half as much more work so the second one is similar but the design varies a bit.
They are made from Walnut and Cherry with a drip groove around the perimeter. The first one also includes a well to collect drippings. They are both about 1 3/4” and measure about 14” x 20”. The second one is a little longer at 22”. They are finished with our “top secret” board butter. The board butter is 1 part bee’s wax to 4 parts mineral oil with a little vitamin E and lemon essential oil added. So much for top secret!
The first board I gave to Chef Roy who organizes the East End Sunday market in Houston’s Second Ward. He just had a birthday and was snooping around our booth for a board last week. The second one I was hoping to sell at market this week, but it was too rainy for us.
Hope you like. Comments welcome!
