Here’s another batch of bread and oil boards that I’ve made. They measure 18” x 5” and have small recesses cut out under the bowls. Many species of wood were used. Referencing the second picture (L-R), the line up goes: cherry/maple; maple/makore; maple/padauk; and walnut/maple/padauk. Had a lot of fun making these and some might be maklng an appearance under a christmas tree.

All comments and questions are welcome. Enjoy!

Nice job. I like that it has the rails and a place for the cup.

Wow, that is incredibly creepy. I’ve never posted any, but you’ve reproduced exactly what I’ve made two of before, down to the hardware. Gave them to my Grandad and a cousin.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone! They are greatly appreciated.

@ Jerry: These were finished with mineral oil – same treatment as you would give an end grain cutting board since these will be in contact with food.

@ Chaotic: Too funny! Post some pictures sometime of your versions!

Have your say...
