cutting board from scraps

Ash, Oak and Elm. Since I cut a lot of 2 inch slabs, I get a lot of 2 inch scrap. This was my first cutting board. Lots of imperfections but I learned a lot. Finished with mineral oil. It’s about 12×12.

Thanks for looking

If those are scraps, I’d love to see what you made with the prime wood! Great work.

You are definately a “jack of all trades”. You post an interesting variety of projects and they are all well done. I think I need to expand my skill set.
