Wedding gift for a friend. Still have a few coats of butcher block oil to add!
Red oak and hard maple for the little feet, turned on the lathe.

Nice board, since it red oak, make sure you seal the pores with beeswax…

Did you have a lot of red oak on-hand?

I like the horizontal layout of the pattern, but am wondering why you used an open-grained wood, instead of something with a tighter grain, such as maple, walnut, or one of the other “usual suspects”?

Nice addition with the feet too.
