Okay, I’m hooked too. Cutting boards just offer too many interesting possibilities, to pass up. :-)
I made similar end grain boards for Christmas gifts to my siblings, last year, and my niece immediately made it known that she wanted one of her own. She’s off to college in the Fall, so I made this one as a graduation gift for her.
It measures 10”x10”x 1 1/4” thick (the rows are 1 1/8” wide), and is finished with my top-secret*, home-brewed, mineral oil and beeswax finish. It’s made from Oregon black walnut, ‘eastern’ hard maple, and ‘eastern’ cherry—my take on Neapolitan ice cream. Maple, walnut and cherry are all ice cream flavors, right???
I’ll let you figure out the Fibonacci part on your own….
As always, comments are welcome.
- It’s actually no secret at all. Both the formula and the finishing method I use can be found here – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24988.
