So this is my first project using my own tools and work shop (not my dads). Its made with Australian Hardwood and finished with paraffin oil (what i think we call mineral oil).

Maple, walnut, birch and cherry are a little harder to come by down here so if anyone has any wood recommendations i would love to hear them.

Nicely done. Cutting boards are always a good way to break in a shop!

Nice work. I made a cutting board out of Tasmanian Blackwood that has stood the test of time and abuse.

Other common species for cutting boards in Australia could be Camphor Laurel, Blackbutt, some of the gum species, jarrah, etc. Pretty well any that aren’t toxic in any way and that are reasonably hard.
