Well, I really enjoy all of the cutting board ‘art’ posted on LJ, but in the overall universe of cutting boards, somebody has to be at the bottom of the barrel… Here’s my entry!
Actually this is a renovation of a friend’s board that he uses for microwave pizza. When brought to me in a zip bag, it was in pieces and about as white as a dead fish belly from years of being washed in a dishwasher, no finish ever applied that he remembered. Told him the board wouldn’t stress my firewood pile much and thanked him. With a shakey voice he explained that “it’s an heirloom, maybe the only inheritance he would get”, so how could I resist?!
Anyway, after ripping fresh edges on about 5 or 6 of the mating sections, cleaning the cracks, did a glue-up and it was again whole, although a bit smaller. Beveled the edges, and with a couple of coats of mineral oil, called it done. Last two pics are BO (Before Oil).
Fun little project, time in the shop is priceless!
