While makeing some cutting boards for mother’s day, I made a some others. Both are Maple and Walnut like the others. I wanted some good pictures, better than I can take, so I call a buddy who is a professional photographer. I offered a cutting board outa the next batch I make.

They were hand planed and finished with butcher block finish.

Very nice. Did you do final finish with the plane or use some sandpaper.

I’d like to see a larger size picture if you can, about a 640×480 would be nice.
