That’s plumb purtyful!

I hesitate to mention it, but if you make them that nice they’ll end up on display, not on the counter getting chopped up!

Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you!

I’ve made about 6 of these and no one wants to use them. I’m not giving up just yet. I keep asking people to hack and chop away. I don’t know how they wil hold up over time if they don’t get used….

It is sealed with salad bowl finish thinned to allow better penetration and hopefully provide a good seal.

Great work!

I just tell people to chop on one side and display the other.

I still have a few folks that I visit and note that they never seem used though…..

Fantastic grain contrast in this board – awesome build!

Thanks – Hickory is fairly inexpensive and it actually worked well in this application. I’ve since used it instead of maple for several more cutting boards. It didn’t darken as much as maple when I applied the finish. I like the light/dark contrast between the two woods.
