Well the Larry bug has gotten me too (Degoose). This is my first attempt at an end grain bread board. It is a bit on the small side because that was the extent of my clamps. Expect bigger if maybe not better things in the future as I have just invested in 3 Bessy 600mm clamps.
I have no idea what the woods are, but they came up very nice. Even SWMBO has commented and even said they will make great gifts. I will have to hit her up for some more tools. Must haves of course. Cannot build good bread boards without them. Don’t like my chances, I think she maybe onto that one.
I used Orange Oil to finish it. It was the only finishing oil in Bunnings that could be used on Bread Boards. A bit expensive ($27 Australian) but I was keen to get the first one done. (Note: Bunnings is the Australian version of Home Depot)
Will get working on number two this weekend. I have already promised it to Anna.
