Here are a few cutting boards I have made in the last few weeks…
Big one is African Teak / Yellowheart / Oak / and some kind of exotic wood that came in a bundle I ordered as a sticker it looks just like some rosewood i ordered…. measures 12”x22”
Basketweave pattern is Oak / Alder / Walnut… it has some gaps becouse my saw table needs aligned :(...
Cross grain is the left over from a from a larger board made from african teak / aniegre… The anirgre darkend a bunch with oil so the contrast was not what I hoped for….

very pretty you anticipate trouble from the basketweave board? You have the grain running opposite….

These are some nice cutters. I especially like the basket weave. I have been meaning to “join the club” but just have not made time for it, yet.

Cool, very nice cutting boards !! I agree with Scott the basket weave is an eye catcher.

Excellent boards. Love the contrasting wood species. Question for you? Have you tried the 50% Salad Bowl Finish with 50% Mineral Spirits mix for the finish? My first board was finished with Mineral Oil and I too was a bit bummed with the over-darkening of the woods. The second large batch I created, I finished with the 50-50 mix and was really pleased with the finish. It was much lighter on the woods and didn’t have that oily finish in the hand. Anyways, it may be worth a try sometime. These are great boards.
