Looks like a very smooth finish. I like the contrasting woods.

I know its ease to make more than one but six. Well that if you want to make one for me as well. Nice project. The wood selection is out standing. I’m sure your gifts were well received and weill show up every Thankgiving and Christmas for many many years. My son has the cutting board I make for my Mother in Highschool over 40 years ago. And it still looks great.

The wood choices are excellent. This is a nice effort. It not only gave you some shop time but also let you make gifts that are priceless.
Very nice idea and outstanding work.
Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous cutting boards…I would hang them up instead of running knives on them. Great silky finish too.

Thanks everyone. I haven’t had much spare time in the shop these days and it’s always good to show a project and get some atta boys.Grumpy the boards were for last christmas. I’m now making a hope chest, and some little treasure chests for the grandkids. Great fun.

Melissa has been using our cutting board every day! I picked up some Butcher block oil and have treated it a few times now. I’m thinking I need to give it a buff up job. Remind me what to use…was is 000 steel wool or should I hit it with some sand paper? Grit size? I noticed the maple shows cut marks more than the purple hart. I’m assuming the PH is much harder.
Also, if steel wool or sand paper do I use a circular sanding stroke or linear?
