The large board in the foreground is our daily user which needed a re-oil, but the rest are all new boards via the wood whisperer method.

maple, cherry, walnut and butternut.

see my recent blogs for progress and methods over the past couple of weeks (hey, it’s a hobby, I took my time)

Thanks Joe!

Thanks ken!

Stumpy… well documented wood whisperer method… glue up blank, plane to thickness, cut apart, stand on end, glue together, plane to thickness, square up and then round over the edges/sand… pretty simple.

lanaug, straight mineral oil wipe on, let it soak in, wipe off excess with a dry cloth… ‘once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month from then on’ regime. others have suggested that simply pouring oil in a turkey roasting pan (large enough, and relatively disposable), and simply putting the boards in the pan and letting them soak the oil in works too. I find the wipe on method works well for me.

dude, can I call you dude? lol

couple of those are for gifts, but I’m considering putting several in a local consignment shop for sale. If I get a really nice one, my son’s father in law runs an art gallery, and I will then see if I can sell them as ‘art’, with a stand
