I realized that it had been over a month since I had posted any projects. Well, we can’t have that!!
This is a long grain cutting board I made for my step mother for this last Christmas. It is about 10” wide and 22” long. It is about 3/4” thick. The woods, from the inside out, are Narra, Birdseye Maple, Purpleheart, and Canarywood. I used a biscuit joiner to add a little perpendicular strength.
Once I had routed and planed it, I sanded the heck out of it with my finish sander. I finished it off with several slatherings of butcher block oil (mineral oil, uncscented). I guaranteed the board and told my mother in law that if anything ever went wrong with the board all she needed to do was fly me down to Florida and I would fix it at no charge!
Thanks for taking a look.
