I wanted to give some gifts to some lady friends that could be done quickly and inexpensive. Walla, trivets/cutting boards.
Made with several woods; walnut, oak, maple, cherry, poplar….
The first single photo shows where I added a solid surface spline for a little different touch. The second is a standard cutting board. I really like the way the green tint of the poplar stands out. It was because of this that I decided not to make it an end grain block like the others. And it is because of this my daughter is expecting one as well; you guys know how it is. lol.
Finished heavily with vegetable oil. I think they are going to like them.

Nice boards : )
Never use vegetable oils on cutting boards as it becomes rancid over time. Mineral oil is the best and also inexpensive and readily available .

Thanks Dusty.

I will try mineral oil next time. Thanks for the tip! Sounds like the safe route to take. Looks like you have some knowledge in this area! You have some nice boards as well. Thanks!

You could also try buffing with beeswax after the mineral oil… and grapeseed oil is ok too.
BTW cool boards..
