Been putting of doing this for a while. Made 4 cutting boards yesterday.
Most everything used was scrap. I used to make a lot of pens and being the pack rat I am, I have a bunch of offcuts that were too small for for pens, but too nice of wood to toss. So this is result. Planed down the strips, glued up and cut up to strips the two smallest.
The two darker and smaller are made from Jatoba and home grown Bois ‘d arc. Haven’t made a good jig to hold down the part in the horizontal plane, so I had to sand a bit extra. The largest board is randoms. Was going to cut and make endgrain, but it just looked to good to cut up without good fixture. It has Jatoba, Wenge, Padauk, Bois ‘d Arc, Sycamore and Canarywood.
The last has Canarywood, Sycamore, Jotoba and Cypress.
Use Olive oil for finish, nothing else.
As I’ve got bunches of strips, I think I’ll keep this up for a while.
Thanks for looking.
