I will never match (Degoose’s) standards but I was definitely inspired by his work.
Trying to figure out just the basics!
Yo-Yo made from glue-up cut-offs.
These may make for some X-mas gifts.
Thanks Larry for the Inspiration!!

Very Larry-ish design : )
Woods and finish used ?
Did you also make the spoon ?

Well… I am impressed… that is a very well executed design… it is very good…. in fact better than my first rather shabby attempt..keep up that standard and you will progress to the next generation…

Not real certain of major wood? Always thought it was some type of Rosewood, also Holly, Black Walnut, & Oak.
The Spoon was turned on Lathe.
The Finish is Vegetable Oil.

You have done a good job in creating the CB. Nice wood combo. If I may make a suggestion, I found using vegetable oil on CB’s tends to give the board a rancid smell after a few applications. Just a thougth.

Very nice work. The thing that bothers me about these elaborate cutting boards is that something so pretty shouldn’t get a scratched up. I agree with amagineer above. Used mineral oil or walnut oil. They have a butcher block treatment material at Lowes and Home Depot that works pretty good.

Very nice.
And the Yo Yo is cool. Nice way to use up scraps.

And yes, do mineral oil. Not vegetable oil. Some nut oils are ok too – walnut oil….

Good job,
