Made as a gift for a friend who is preparing to build a house – this board is made from a wall I tore out of my 1913 craftsman home – an ORIGINAL wall. So essentially, this cutting board is a repurposed 2×3 stud (since they didn’t use 2×4s back then). The grain is amazing since the wood is old-growth doug fir, not like the stuff you’d find on the shelves these days. I just cut brick-proportioned blocks and glued ‘er up, finished with mineral oil and beeswax.
