Just another cutting board. But WOW look at that Bubinga! The chatoyance is strong with this one! It’s heavy, 1.25 inch thick and 12 inches by 14 inches. Better have a good knife sharpener on hand too, very dense. Strip of Hickory just for a little contrast. Wood supplied by requestor and it is beautiful! Sanded down to 320 grit then multiple coats of hand rubbed mineral oil applied. Finger grooves in two edges to assist in lifting. Wish I had a truck load of this beautiful wood from South America!

Beautiful board! I love working with Bubinga but it’s so expensive I had to stop using exotics. I did, however buy 2 pieces o Zebra Wood 1×6x10’. I was looking around in Texas Molding and the Zebra was mixed in with their s4s Walnut. Since that’s all they had they sold it to me for $5 a LF. I buy Cherry, Oak, Walnut, Mahogany, Beach, and Maple from them and they give it to me for contractor price. Around $8 a BF for Walnut way cheaper than Rockler.
