This cuttingboard is made from oak and some other wood i don’t know the name of. :-)
I got all this wood from my uncle
He had it in he’s shed for years.
The wood “where i don’t know the name of” is really heavy, thats all i can say.
Somebody has any idea?
The enges of the board i did on my router table.

Don’t know the wood but it certainly is nice.

Excellent work Erik. I love the grain pattern and the contrast in the wood tones. Looks very rustic and solid.

Nice board colors and the wood might be elm Japanese. I’ve seen some look similar. Plus it’s been 888 days since you posted this project. That’s good luck.
