This is my second (and third) cutting board. It stands about 2 inches tall and was made from my scrap bin. This was fairly simple. I am going to try my hand at some more difficult patterns later. The other board is made from some red oak I had in my cut off bin. Finished with MO.

No this is all redwood from the big box. Just a quick job for a temporary situation at my son’s house thus the knockdown type. I used waterlox sealer and waterlox finish and it is doing fine a year later.

Nice boards, Rick! The light and dark contrasts really go together well.

Nice work, Rick. You did a great sanding job. Very nice.

You’ve done it now Rustic. The secret handshake is on its way. Once you make the Endgrain boards and people see them you won’t be able to make them fast enough! LOL Nice Boards.
