This is my second cutting board. The first was a gift, this ones for me. It was made with Cherry, Maple and Bloodwood. It’s about 12×16x1.25, has a nice weight to it. I added little rubber feet to it to stop it from sliding around. I have found that the cutting boards slide too much on granite without the feet. Hand eased all the edges with my trusty block plane and hand scraped the flat surfaces for a nice smooth finish. Used a mineral oil, beeswax and carnauba wax butcher block finish. Still needs one or two more coatings but ill let the first few soak in overnight. Overall happy with the way it turned out.
