This is my first cutting board. It is made from maple, walnut and red oak.

Dimensions: 19×12 x 1.5 “

Finish: Watco BBO&F (thanks for the tip degoose) – three coats so far.

It is also my first project using my new planer.

It is also the first project i really used my restored Sergeant #4 smoother on.

Yup that there is a terrible pic… but the board is fine…For my taste I would have run the stripes longways… but then it is cool do your own thing…maybe take a pic rotated 90 degrees…. so the stripes run up and down…

degoose – I went with the direction you see ‘cause the scrap walnut I used was only about 12 inches long and the board was requested to be 18-1/2”. Would have made using the planner easier too. Oh well. All turned out well in the end. It was interesting to see this big o pile of glued up mess turn into the board you see.

So far I like it. The board now has 4 coats on the top and edges but only 1 on the bottom and you can tell a huge difference. It is very very easy to apply.
