Nice work, I have a lot of respect for these projects after trying one myself, my table saw just isn’t up to the job.

Like that design Nathan, if I stare at it longer than a second or two, the puzzle effect starts to move in the middle. Thanks for making me dizzy.

Very nice, I just started trying to make cutting boards, I do have a question about using walnut, with the toxic oils is it safe to use in a cutting board.

Great Boards. I am in the process of making an end-grain board, but I would love to have the instructions for your boards and the patterns you came up with.

dougdeg, people have come up many with food safe finishes for kitchen items. A popular one for cutting boards is a combination of beeswax and mineral oil. I bought some natural varnish oil (the brand is Tried and True) to use on cutting boards, which gives a longer lasting finish.

I wonder how well Granny cuts on these with the way my eyes go out of focus when I look at them. Nice job on the boards and nice wood. Walnut is toxic??

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Walnuts can be harmful to people allergic to specific protiens in the nuts, the acidic content is errosive to horse hooves if shavings are used for bedding. As far as I know the wood used for a cutting board doesn’t pose any threats. I seal mine the woodwhisperer way: 50/50 General Finishes SBF and mineral spirits. It’s durable and penetrates to make a good sealed up surface. Thanks for the comments. Let me know if I need to stray away from using Walnut.

Have your say...
