Had requests at last show for cutting boards. I really don’t have the right selection of woods for these, but it’s what i have. Oak, Ash and maple. I don’t know what type of maple it is, but it’s really hard with dark heart wood.

Just oiled both with mineral oil

Thanks for looking

Those are very nice Monte, I know Maple you can’t go wrong Oak not sure about but I think Ash from my experience from working it, might be a bit on the soft side, none the less they look great

looks like a good start from here, if you have some walnut you can use thinner pieces to use as accent strips it would help decorate these, but its a great start…good luck with sales..
