Not a fan of flat grain Oak in cutting boards due to its open grain structure , but your second board takes a blue ribbon : )

Way to go on the weave board, especially if it’s only your first or second board!

I would have to agree with Dusty56 in regards to the oak, but at least it is along the outside edge. Are the wood species: red oak, walnut, purpleheart, cherry, and curly maple?

If I was making a board for slicing dry goods (breadboard) , I would have no problem using Oak.

It’s the “juicy” stuff that leads to possible contamination : )
Keep up the good work !!
