Sorry about the picture quality…I just couldn’t get the lighting right on this one.

Blistered Maple and Cherry cutting board for my friends , Van and Saren : )

Finish is Mineral Oil and it had been applied just before the pix were taken , making the board appear glossy in some of the pix.

Your Comments and Critiques are always welcome : )

Nice looking board. Did you really have to paint it pink?? ;0) Seriously, nice piece.

Great board… except for the color! I’ve never seen pink wood ;-)

Dusty, that is some good looking maple in that board!

I like the broadly sweeping curved edges too.
