I made this CB as a thank you to a neighber for taking care of my property while I was sick. Its made from Black Walnut, Hard Maple, Paduck, Shedua, Yellowheart with Bolivian rosewood feet. It is 12×12 x 1-5/8. Sealed with salad bowl finish and soaked over night in mineral oil/beeswax. I also attached rubber feet.

Now this is a nice looking cutter. And it made a great gift, I am sure. I like the look that the rosewood feet give to the board. I may have to try this.

very nice board but I have a question. When I have used padauk in an end grain cutting board I am never able to get rid of all the saw dust in the wood pores. Then when I apply butcher block oil, the color rubs off on the cloth. I have tried my air compressor, tack cloths, the shop vac and even a cloth with isopropyl alcohol. It just seems from the drum sander and ros, that wood dust won’t come out.

How do you manage this issue?
