I decided to take a break from finishing other pending projects and build my very first cutting board ever!
Of course I got the pattern wrong and what else but my wife likes it.
I followed many postings by Degoose: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/16520, definitely a master in board making and many other things.
I also followed Mary Anne blog: http://lumberjocks.com/LateNightOwl/blog/18277
and poroskywood http://lumberjocks.com/poroskywood/blog/10833
Both Mary Anne and poroskywood have very detail blogs on this particular style of board.
It take a couple of hours excluding glue drying time.
A lot of bandsaw work, very light sanding. The only thing tedious was the glue up and clamping.
Used dark Walnut, maple and strips of cherry. Those stips were cut on my table saw with the help of my jig: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/38663
Finished with2 coats of mineral oil followed by 2 coats of mineral oil mixed with bees wax. I plan to add a couple of more layers of wax to bring the sheen up.
