I made this for my best friends wife, her brother made one like this over twenty years ago. Well he now has cancer and is not long for this world so she asked me to take his board and cut it in half and re-finish them so that she could give his daughters something that he had made. That’s when I decided to make one exactly like it for her to keep for herself in memory of her brother. The woods are walnut and oak, and yes I know oak isn’t the best choice for a cutting board, but that’s what he used in the original.

Then oak is exactly what you should have used under the circumstances! Great job trying to make the best of a bad situation.

Beautiful board. If the heart is pure, the mind will guide the outcome and in this case the honor shown to your friend needs no words.
