This is my second board now, and one of the biggest thrills there is, is to wipe butcher block conditioner on the finished board, and watch the lights come on. It’s just amazing to me. Glad I spent so much time sanding. That end-grain is tough!
This board is for Mom on Mother’s Day, and she’ll love it. I’ve got to overnight it to her. It’s automatic that she’ll love it, because she’s Mom, but I think it will really blow her away that I did something like this. Long way from that pine long-grain pig-board that I made at the band saw in 7th grade woodshop class! Wow, that was 30+ years ago.
Unlike the first one, I just kind of threw this one together from some s4s stock I had. Cherry and Walnut are the woods. First time using either of them. I am so addicted.
