This pattern idea came from a good buddy on here named Eric. Screen name Childress. I have always liked these style of boards. I decided to make a proto-type before maiking a batch of 15 of them. For some reason I really like the looks of these.

Made out of Burl Walnut and Hard Maple 8/4, sanded to 320 and finished with 50/50 Salad Bowl Finish & Mineral Spirits.

Thx for looking.

I see why you like the style. Nice colors. Mineral spirits? That high gloss we see in the picture-the finish is not dry, right? I’ve been pleased enough with food safe and inexpensive, Mineral oil, but I see retreatment is required pretty often if the board is used regularly. I know you’ve made many more endgrain cutting boards than me; is this the Salad Bowl finish and mineral spirits what you’ve been using? Great work Ken!

Thx Everyone,

Lee; We had a B day party for Blondie 120 guest and got 12 orders when they saw mine in the house. They even gave deposits.

Steve; your right production, Ugh but a little mone is nice to buy more tools. LOL

Rick; It is wet, after abou 8 coats of the 50/50 mix they really shine which is what I prefer. If you look at a cpl of my other posts you can she the shine.

Roger; approx 15×26

Ken; sorry we missed one another in SD next time.

Thx to everyone else for the kind words.

COOL idea… A Rail & Stile with Flush panel! (as it looks to me)

Hope it holds together OK…

Sure is purdy!...

Thank you.

You really have designed a nice CB. It definitely is a big one. You must have a large planer or drum sander for one this size. I am sure it will be easier making 15 more. Did you use just glue or something like a spline to hold it together.

Very cool. So the mineral spirits help it shine more? No problem with toxicity of the spirits?

Nice board, but what’s the point of using a food safe top coat with mineral spirits, kinda defeats the point doesn’t it?
