Commissioned by local Deli to make this 16×20 inch cutting board and have sold several boards due to their customers asking “where did you find such a board ” ....I make all custom sizes and use all types of wood to satisfy their requests for “something special “

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Looks nice. I like the rounded corners.

Beautiful. Thanks for showing the “before oil” photo. It’s amazing how oil makes that grain come to life.

-- Happy woodworking!

Hi Dusty,

I like the cutting board. Maple and cherry are my favorite wood combination and you have done them both justice with this board.

By the way I see the resemblance to my plant dolly. But to tell you the truth I like yours better. The rounded corners give the piece some detail and you used an odd number of cherry strips in it which give it balance.

Nice post. (And I wouldn’t be biased in any way simply because it looks a lot like a similar project of mine). :)

ND2ELK , sorry that I didn’t see your question sooner. The board was finished with Mineral Oil. I haven’t found anything better as yet, although sometimes I will also use Bee’s wax along with the M.Oil : ) Thanks to everyone else for the kind words : )
