This was my first atempt a cutting board. Wood is from a crab apple tree from my Grandparent’s back yard. Tree was planted sometime in the 50’s and was cut down last year as it was dying. Unfortunatley it was cut and split into firewood before I could get my hands on it so I only have a selection of smaller pieces. It was only dried for a few months in a make shift solar kiln so I am experiencing some movement after working it. A small crack developed in the last day few days as you can see in the fourth picture. It is finished with 4 coats of mineral oil that I get from the hospital.
