This cutting board is made from Mahogany and White Oak and weighs in at just under 5lbs. The dimensions are 14×12x1-1/8. I applied 5 to 6 coats of General Finishes Salad Bowl Finishing Mix with #0000 steel wool used in between. I’m not sure why I went with this pattern, must have been thinking parquet at that time!

The design looks good : )

A friend of mine gave me a bunch of “scrap wood” as he called it! One of those pieces was a good size block of that oak.

I like the pattern. I have never heard of brown oak. This CB should last a long time.

It looks like regular White Oak , which usually has a brownish color to it.
I didn’t know if you had purchased some English Brown Oak , which is actually brown due to a fungus.: )

Amagineer,
I think it’s brown oak or that’s what my friend told me it was. I am still learning all of the different wood species so it could be something else!!! :)

I did put white oak next to it and it was definitely darker which is why I don’t think its white oak but it very well could be.

I have all different shades of White Oak (mostly on the brownish side), and I can only compare its characteristics to the Red Oak that is native to my area : )
I used to work with a guy that thought Ash was White Oak : )

The only other thing worth mentioning is that it has these black streaks throughout the grain which is something I haven’t seen before. Does that give you any more insight into possible color? I have only been woodworking for less than a year and unless it has a sticker with the species, I have to really try and figure out what is what!!! When my friend gave me all of this scrap, I had to try and get my other friends to help me figure out what everything was! LOL!

Yeah, I see that. It must just be White Oak then, thanks for clarifying that for me… now I know! :)
