Cutting boards I made for clients. Maple, Walnut, and Cherry.
Very Heavy. Dark line in larger board was too deep to sand out so just left it there for character.
Couple of you asked how I got such good glue ups. After gluing entire board I take it to a Time Saver Sander and it is taken from 80 grit to 120 grit. Then I take a vibrator sander to 180 grit. Has a mirror finish feel when completed.
Finished with a Mineral oil wipe down.
My wife has used one of these boards for years and yes, she does use soap on it. But the trick is as soon as you rinse it give it a quick dry down with a dish towel. Do NOT set to drain.
