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!

very cool boards good job not sure about this so you might ask someone but i made one using oak and some of the lj”s said it wasnt good for a cuting board because of the grain makes it easy for contamination of the food so i just used mine as a bread board but like i say you might want to check into it .im not being critical just trying to be helpful but they sure do look great very nice work i like the way the oak looks myself too
