Happy Holidays All,
Time to get rid of some scrap lumber in the basement. Put the circles in with forstner bits and large plug cutters.

The circles are a really cool enhancement. Can’t say I’ve seen that before…

Are all those circles inlays?

Inlays? I’ve always thought of inlays as tedious and very small pieces. But I suppose they’ve been in-laid. I use a forstner bit that matches the same size as the plug cutter and they fit beautifully, too easy….
I purchased the plug cutters from:http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/index.aspxThey have top notch plug cutters.
Thanks for your comments/questions,Mikee

Slick. I like the circles too, nice unusual touch. Makes these cutting boards quite unique.

really cool circles, nice idea. What kind of finish did you use?

Because they’re cutting boards, I always use Mineral Oil. It’s hard to find at the grocery store, I had to ask and they said it’s by the alcohol (rubbing not drinking), which it was, on the very bottom shelf. It really brings out the colors and won’t get rancid. I apply one heavy coating of the oil and come back in a half hour and wipe them well with paper towels.

Go to the drug store to get mineral oil, always in stock there.
