I am having so much fun making these cutting boards! I can see why LJs is so full of them now. The sky’s the limit as far as creativity, and I’ve just scratched the surface. I scored some really neat wood for these from some old church pews that were built in 1913 some from white oak a couple of them quarter sawn I think, and some from Hickory. Amazingly hard wood and in GREAT shape for being that old. Pic #2 is a 12×14 long grain board with some of the Oak with a couple strips of cherry, Black Walnut, and a big strip of Ash down the middle. Pic 3+ 4 is a 12×18 also long grain board with the Hickory and Oak pew wood with some Hard Maple and Butternut added in. Pic 5 is a 1 3/4 thick slab of Pin Oak about 9×17 I rescued from a bundle of slab wood that I bought from an Amish sawmill for firewood. It has some real pretty figuring along the one side. The finish is just 2 coats of Watco Butcher Block Finish sanded to 320 between coats. I’ve got so many more ideas for cutting boards now, its just unreal. Can I be in the cutting board club now? Hope you all enjoy the pics, and thanks for the inspiration on here!
