Left over scraps of wood from my grandfathers workshop. First shot at laminating wood and cleaned up with a router. Finished with a beeswax and mineral oil blend.

Jeez that is a hell of a first cutting board! Nice work sir. Love that you will get to think about your grandfather every time you and your generations use it.

Thank you. Boards are Walnut and Bloodwood. I’m not sure what the light boards are, I just grabbed a small strip of hardwood for an accent.

If you’re ever in my workshop you’d better keep your hands off MY scraps, because those are too nice to be called scraps! (There’s no such thing a bloodwood scraps, with that stuff you use every part, just like the Indians did with the buffalo…:)
