Cutting Board

My first end grain cutting board, mostly just a way to use up scrapes from previous projects. The woods are Maple, Walnut, Cherry and some African Mahogany. The size is a bit smaller than most people make 9” x 12” and only 5/8” thick. The finish is a mineral oil and wax combination. The pattern was not planed but I think its really nice. It took some work but the family is actually using the board on a daily basis and we love it. It is way harder then the usual cutting boards we have had from kitchen stores. The frame was my way of dressing it up a bit 3/16” Maple and 1/2” African Mahogany (selected the darkest parts that I had).

After making the big projects its was great to step back and do something small and relatively quick. I am been reading up on some of the more complicated pattern boards, going to have to try one of those next.

Looks very nice, what kind of wax did you use beeswax? I just blended some mineral oil and beeswax for my first cutting board I just finished. What ratio of oil and wax did you use?
Thanks for posting.

Nice wood combo.
The workmanship and design look fantastic and the finish is nice and smooth.
Lots of sanding I bet.
