I gave 12 boards away over Christmas and everyone, I mean every one, loved them. I still get compliments on them.
This is a repeat with more precision and balance of lines of purpleheart. 1st one had even spacing this one is more balanced.
The finish I have worked on is easy and bbs (baby butt smooth). Butcher block poly cut with 40% mineral spirits. Sand original to 320 and wipe on poly mixture with paper towel. No runs. Next day sand out with 400 grit. Repeat for 3 coats. Finish sanding with 600 or more. BBS. This finish soaks in mostly so there is no build up which is what I want. Cutting board finish I think should be thin and into the wood. No build up.
Hard maple purplehart 12×18x1.25”.
