This is my second attempt at a cutting board. Still not all that technically hard but a lot of hard work. Especially considering I dont have an orbital sander, YET. It was sanded to 400 grit by hand all over.

The finish is a board oil made from oranges. The whole thing is made from recycled timber, including some very old hard wood fence pailings and hardwood flooring over 100 years old. The metal detector was a valuable investment for this job.

I made it for a friend’s birthday and she likely it very much (Sam is a she).

Hope you like it.

Thanks again Larry, more to come.

Doug

Thanks everyone. I invested in 3×600mm Bessey Clamps. At $90 each (Australian Dollars) that was all I could afford. I then noticed you could get 2 for $110 from Hare & Forbes that look very similar. Always the way. But I am very happy with the Besseys
