This is my first end grain cutting board. Its a smaller, cheese size cutting board for my in laws for the holidays. I really enjoyed making it with my new jigs… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57812, then routed out one side for a small area for your fingers and all the edges are routed with a 1/4” roundover bit. Its finished with 3 coats of salad bowl finish after sanding to 220.
Woods used: curly cherry(I had left over so free wood is the best) and a few pieces of hard maple(also scraps) which are hard to see after applying the oil. Hopefully after the cherry darkens there will be a more noticeable contrast.
I’ll be posting this weekend the remaining gifts for them after I finish them up….A matching set of turned celtic knot bottle stopper, celtic knot bottle opener, and a celtic knot cheese slicer all out of maple and cherry. Also a magnifying glass with possibly lacewood for my wife’s grandma since she is having a hard time reading with her vision going but wishes she could still.
Thanks for looking, happy holidays.
