Correct me if I am wrong but, I always told to use a tight grained wood like Maple or Cherry for cutting boards. The open grain woods like Oak tend to trap food particales, which could cause a health problem.

I hear that Home depot buys that stuff by the truck load…then try to sell it back to unsuspecting woodworkers. LOL.

Nice boards by the way.
Happy New year

I was going to suggest tooth picks. But your choice was better.

Nice set of creations.
