Your typical end grain cutting board with maple and purpleheart. I made this as a very last minute gift for a relative for xmas… and did all the requisite things like dousing it in mineral oil over 3-4 days until it wanted no more and waxing it off like a surfboard.
I told him it was for garlic, ginger – small vegetable things as it’s really a small board.
He proceeded to use it for meat. He told me he soaked it for a full minute in hot water. Then it warped so he threw it on the fire.
Is the warping due to my construction not being solid enough (I used Titebond III) or was he just… for lack of a better word… an idiot for soaking a non-commercially made cutting board in hot water for minimally 60 seconds?
Oh gods of the cutting boards – your opinion on this is most wanted….
