This was a fun afternoon project. The cherry board is about 11” x 14” and is finished with a few coats of mineral oil and then a mineral oil/parafin wax paste. I used a skewed block plane and low angle block plane to give the board a slightly convex shape, and a spokeshave to round the edges. I also used my #5 stanley plane for the first time to flatten the board initially. That went a little bit better than expected after flattening the sole of plane and sharpening the blade to the best of my ability (still something I need to get better at doing). Thanks for checking it out. Simple, but I was happy with the look and feel of the board in the end.
