TexPenn is a Lumberjock who’s been an inspiration for me and a while back he posted a cutting board made like this one. It took a while before I learned how to cut tiny rings and glue them into a log shape for an end grain cutting board. (big evil grin) Nope, it’s just a 1 1/2” section of a walnut log that I sanded, coated with tung oil, and wet sanded with tung oil and extra fine steel wool. It’s so nice I don’t know if I’ll be able to cut anything on it. I’m not going to sand the next one as much, so I’ll actually use it. I guess this one will be a Christmas present for someone.
I may use another one of the log sections I dried to make a wall clock. It would be great looking with a simple clock mechanism and numbers around the edge of the walnut plaque.
