I decided to make ‘just one more’ cutting board and to stretch the difficulty level ever so slightly. Here’s the result. I took the photograph under artificial light so the colour is a bit off. This one’s oak, sycamore and what I believe is teak from a recycled school-lab bench top. Finish is the usual mineral oil (known as liquid paraffin over here)

My learning point from this one is to try a little harder over grain continuity next time. NEXT TIME?!

Anyone got the number for Cutting Boards Anonymous?

Very nice. Now my wife wants one. My to-do list just keeps getting longer.

How do you manage the glue-up with all of those intricate pieces?

This is way too nice to cut anything on – better to hang it on the wall! Very nice, Stewart.

The country weave pattern is very nice. It would be a nice addition to someones kitchen.

Thanks folks! EarlS the best thing I can do is point you towards one of the excellent video tutorials on Youtube Tom – Mmmm you’re right, I doubt there’l be much serious cutting done on this. It’ll probably be used for serving cheese or somesuch.

Very nice, I really like this type of design. Stewart the first step in recovery is admitting to the obsession problem…..lol

It’s only a problem if you let it be. They have only gotten better. Have you neglected your family to keep sneaking out to the shop? Have you mortgaged your house to buy more wood? Are your neighbors complaining about all of the wood dust and noise? I think we need to encourage those of you who keep perfecting the ART. This one is very nice. As Earl said, another one for my to do list.

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

Splendid board. Well done.

Wonderful board Stewart. Personally I think the grain looks just fine and any differences just give it more interest.

Ha! O.K. Peterrum and Martyn, maybe I’m just a teensy bit obsessed!

At the mo, there is always just another one (or two) designs to do & then I’ll do something that needs to be done. I’m not seeking a cure yet even though I could just about say yes to one of Robert’s three questions ;-)

Hello Karson – I still have a question mark over it being teak. It has a teak colour, but doesn’t seem naturally oily. I made some kitchen pieces including a drainer for my step daughter with it some years ago, using waterproof Titebond (which I also used for this board) and it’s hung together O.K.
