Love that wood composition, what did you use to surface and finish with?

The cutting boards are sanded to 320 and then just add mineral oil.

Just looked at your gallery and really liked the way you linked the purpleheart cutting board; the way you connected the maple wood gives the board not only a formal style, but the interlinked appearance reinforces the inherent strength and might of the whole piece.

Also looks like each piece is slightly pillowed with sanding. I know it’s a lighting illusion, but nonetheless, an exciting look. I’d do many more of these. Thanks.
