This is the my latest project with a fresh coat of mineral oil. The boards are 5” x 20” and have reduced my offcuts pile significantly. Yeah, I know, I’m still in “stripes” mode…

Thanks to Lumberjock mtkate for the finishing advice.

Can I steal the idea… lol
Long and sweet.
I do like the line of the stripes.
Do you use a template to cut the shape?

Quite a utilitarian design that’s beautiful to boot. I can see all kinds of uses for a board like these…cutting bread, playing cricket, disciplining the kids…..

Good looking boards. Will you provide a little detail on wood selection and finish?

That size is great for cutting bread. What a great idea…I too will “steal” the idea!

Thanks for all the kind comments. I had kept the description short because I tend to run on a bit at times…

Ericandcandi, the woods are, from left to right: figured maple with padauk and cherry, cherry with roasted maple and regular maple, bird’s eye maple with purpleheart and cherry, cherry with padauk and walnut, roasted maple with purpleheart and cherry. The finish is mineral oil as recommended by mtkate. I was thinking of other finishes (after all it’s a bread board, not meat or veggie). However, mtkate rightly pointed out that if there’s a board (any board) in a kitchen, it will likely be used for veggies or meat even though it may be meant for bread. So I decided to play it safe and use mineral oil.

Degoose, Ellen, by all means steal it. That’s what Lumberjocks is all about: the exchange of ideas and techniques. The wide strips are 1”, the highlight strips are 1/2”, and the smaller stips are 1/4”. Degoose, the template is paper and is drawn onto the board before cutting. The wholke handle section is 6” from shoulders to tip, the round handle being about 2 inches across. The hole is 3/4”. The boards are 5/8” thick. They just looked a little too chunky at 3/4” thick.

Scopemonkey, you think like my wife. She picked up one of the bread boards, whacked it in her palm a couple of times, nodded in approval, and went hunting for our 10-year-old. :-D

Roasted Maple? Not sure I’ve heard of that before. Surely you don’t roast regular maple? ;) ...or maybe you do…I have no idea.

Nice work on these…they have a very nice look to them.

Roasted maple….huh….(I say as I scratch my head…)
