Since moving to Old Fort, NC we have been having a ball making candles, building furniture, making wreaths, painting, and generally having a real good time as a pair of retired folks. Over the past several months we have been showing and selling some of our stuff at a monthly “Arts Mart” held in “downtown” Old Fort. One of the regulars was into making and selling cutting boards; however, last month he announced that he wasn’t going to do that anymore. Having looked at what he was making, I thought I should be able to use a lot of the shorts left over from some of my other projects. This attempt uses cherry, walnut, and white oak and raised panels for the drawer box. I finished the drawer box with Watco and finished the top with mineral oil and beeswax mixture made by Howard.
