This broken cutting board was dropped off by my daughter in our garage last Dec before we went south. I’m not doing much woodworking right now but I thought I’d give this old board a new life. It was in 6 pieces- someone had mistakenly put it in the dishwasher and all the joints came apart and they were very rough with all the grain raised. I thought it was maple so I made one new end piece out of maple for the one that was cracked almost all the way through. while I was at it, 3 pieces of walnut just happened to drop in between some of the boards. I lengthened the finger groove on the bottom side to cut out some of the remaining cracks.
I was going to make a whole new one, but this was a favorite of hers so I went this route to rebuild it. I’ll surprise her with it tomorrow. It is finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.
