I have been a lurker on this site for some time and decided to get an account and contribute project content.

Long story short is my parents in laws often visit our house for lunch or dinner. We have two cutting boards, one for raw meats and one for anything else. This concept was not easily grasped and my wife said why I should make a meat cutting board and vegetable one.

So what do you suppose a meat cutting board looks like? Well the meatiest thing I could think of was a cutting board shaped like a T-bone steak. I had some scrap beech wood and some mahogany from some pallets and thought lets see what happens. It was really supposed to be a prototype as its my first cutting board but it turned out good enough that i will just keep it as is.

Anyone have any ideas what a vegetable one would look like? I don’t know of any wood that is naturally green.

NICE!! It seems that I never get these great ideas. I love it. As far as veggies go, all I can think of might be a light colored wood made like a big onion? Fantastic job, welcome to LJ’s

Best idea i have is an eggplant with a butternut squash intertwined like a yingyang. be an oval shape overall. I have some purple heart for the eggplant, thinking some padauk? for butternut squash. Still brainstorming

Certainly looks the part
now as an aside just what are Bear Pattes?

As for “green” timber ask the question of Shipwright, as he is a dyeing man from my knowledge.

I usually just use a sponge with soap and water and dry off. Is there a proper procedure?

BTW it was finished with mineral oil, then a melted mineral oil/bees wax mixture.
