I was in the process of making my dado shelf (project I posted prior top this one) while I was making this cutting board with my down time. The wood came from an old beat up dresser that we had that want worth fixing. After taking it apart, I decided to keep the top, which was veneered and had about for different colors of paint throughout the years. I was curious as to what the original wood looked like.
This is the original condition of the wood
I threw in some oak scrap for contrast. the final layout started out ugly as sin. I spent about an hour flipping pieces until I found this sudo -pattern. I sealed it with butcher block oil. I sanded it from 60 to 320 grit.
Prior to finishing it with butcher block oil
Any feedback is appreciated.
