Very nice looking cutting boards. I had thought about using peanut oil when I have made those but was afraid if someone was allergic to the peanut oil and would have a reaction other than a smile when given such a beautiful gift.

Tremendous use of different timber to make a very clean pattern.

great looking boards… I like the end grain too. its a small thing to do when re gluing the slices, but makes a lot better cutting surface. you may want to be careful about peanut oil because it can go rancid too. I usually use a Mineral spirit mix. no way for it to go bad and I haven’t heard of anyone being allergic to it. do a Google and there’s several mixes.
