Cherry serving board

I enjoy making boards for various uses, it lets me unwind and play around with different ideas that pop into my head.
This one is cherry with bloodwood and walnut and a wenge plug.
I routed a 1/2” radius on the top edge and eased the bottom edge.
Its about 8” x 17”
I coat all of my boards with brake fluid.

JUST KIDDING! I use mineral oil.

Everyone has their reasons for what they use, I like this because its cheap, available, doesnt turn rancid, and doesnt change the color of the wood.

Cool design Andy ,I like it . That brake fluid has to add that something extra to anything that gets chopped on it :))

nice relaxing abstract

when i was working the boats
in florida

we did use automatic transmission fluid
at one of the factories there
the owner would buy it by the case
for all the teak work
that wasn’t varnished
it is way cheaper than teak oil

maybe not good for food stuff
but it does bring out the grain well

Very COOL Andy!

Mineral Oil makes for a very nice finish… I think…

You’re doing GOOD… as usual!

Thank you.

Looks good like all of your work Andy. I thought brake fluid was for mixed drinks.

Wow! I was about half asleep reading this until I came to the brake fluid part. I assure you,
I am awake now. Funny!

Nice board too.

I use napalmolive gives it that nice dark burned look. Glows in the dark too! Both new boards are great, thanks for showing.
