Some cutting boards that will be given as door prizes an the annual Thanksgiving Community Luncheon at my wifes school. They are made with oak, purpleheart, yellowheart, and walnut. The pen will be presented to a veteran who has served in the armed forces of the US. The veterans deserve our respect and thanks for the sacrifices that they made to protect our freedoms and way of life. God bless and thank you to all current and past Veterans. The pen was made with Texas mesquite with inlayed malachite and RWB corian.

Meant to ask – What’s the finish on these boards? I noticed your other board projects include poplar, mahogany, bloodwood, etc. Does the same finish work on all combinations of woods or do you have to play with different finishes for different woods?

Thanks for the comments, they are always appreciated.
Glen, I put mineral oil on all of my cutting boards. It is available at any drug store and the customer can easily recondition the board as needed.
