This is the first project I’ve ever posted for anything I’ve made. My daughter asked me to make her a cutting board for her birthday. Had never made one before, but seemed pretty easy.
I used walnut and ambrosia maple, end grains. I liked the marbling of the ambrosia and it was the only light colored wood I had that was thick enough for this board. It measures 13×15 x 1.5”. Coated it with linseed oil. Photo is while still wet. I will apply a second coat once it dries. End grain sucked up the oil like crazy.
I tried running it through my planer after turning the end grain up. Planer made a small mess of the ends. I guess from now on it’s sand and sand and sand some more instead of the planer.
