My wife got the idea that I should make some quality cutting boards for the women in our family for Christmas this year. This is the one I just finished for my grandmother. The cross and border and black walnut with cherry extnions. Surrounding the cross is red oak followed by hard maple and another band of red oak on top and bottom. It’s finished with a mixture of mineral oil, carnuba wax, and beeswax.
There’s got to be an easier way to put these things together other than cutting/gluing each individual piece and then sanding to ensure a perfect fit. I’m open to any and all ideas.
