This was a gift I made for my wife for Christmas. Her first comment was, “Where did you buy this?” LOL She was completely surprised because I made it at work during my ten minute break at 9:20, during the last half of lunch, which gave me only about 15 to 20 minutes then, and some mornings when I would show up a little early. Needless to say, I’m glad I started way ahead of time.
The board is all maple which is saturated with mineral oil. The feet are a rosewood of sometype. The inlay on the edge is mahogany, maple, sinker cypress, maple and mahagany. I don’t believe I could have done this nice a job at my own shop at home due to the lack of alot of needed tools which I have readily available at work. After all, I work in a mill with all the tools I need. I hope this isn’t considered cheating. These pictures were taken today after I re-treated the board. Some stains are already in the wood from previous use.
I have to give credit to the Wood Whisperer, master Mark, for not only the tips on treating the board, but for me finding this site. On Christmas morning, after the presents were opened, my son filmed me giving a discription of the board to put on Youtube so my mother in Kentucky could see it too. One day in February, I was watching it on Youtube and stumbled across Mark’s video on treating cutting boards. This lead me to Lumber Jocks and I am very greatful.
All comments are welcome and thanks for looking.
