Well, Here are some more boring boards! We have all made them, it seems. Once someone see’s these and know you can make them, it will never end.
These ended up going to my wife’s son & my neighbor. My wife’s son who we were eating with over x-mas, I had commented that I like his cork cutting boards. He replied well I love yours, but only your rich friends get them. I am like what do you mean? He replied I have hinted to Mom that we would like one of these; I’m like really, Blondie are you aware of this? She is like, no I never picked up on this. Well I was very embarrassed to say the least. So off to the lumber yard I go the next day. The other one is going my next door neighbor Al who is a Minister. Great guy, we have long talks on the interpretation of life and it meaning. He is always amazed how my generation interprets things, especially when he and I read the same books. I have made 2 for his two daughters that got married last yr a cpl months apart. Al is a great chef and he is always staring at them and I finally couldn’t take him being left out.
I chose a 45* mitered edge on these instead of the round over trying to be a little different. 10 coats of 50/50 salad bowl finish and mineral spirits.Thx for looking,
