Maple and Walnut 14 1/4×12
This is my first cutting board. Getting ready for Christmas, yes I have joined the ranks of you that have made this board. I saw it on the wood whisperer and finally gave it a try. I do not have a drum sander (yet <grin>) so I tried to level this out using my planer. It worked somewhat but a lot of chip out and some snipe cause me much consternation. The board started out at 1 1/2 inches and ended up 1 3/16 to get ride of the damage. I used my hand scraper and sander. I have to find a better way to clean up the top for the next one.
I finished it with many coats of mineral oil.
I am always open to suggestions.
