The bowtie inlay and contrasting woods make these cutting boards look like a tuxedo with suspenders.
The wood species are cherry and walnut. Splines, dowels, and inlays create some contrast.
I sealed them with Howards Butcher Block Conditioner which works very well. It is a mix of food grade mineral oil and natural waxes. In the past I have used plain mineral oil, and it made the wood feel oily for weeks. The Howards dries to a smooth low sheen finish in 20 minutes.
