I actually made these a couple month back for Christmas, however my parents wanted a slightly bigger one with a lip and my grandma used danish oil to seal her cutting board, she didn’t like the finish. That being said I took them back to OKC from our Easter weekend in Dallas. My dad came up this past weekend to help build his new cutting board and hang out, great father son time! :)

I used Walnut and Hard maple, and for the front lip I was able to use the 8mm x 50mm Domino’s (worked out GREAT for alignment and strength)

2 light coats of Mineral Oil are applied in these pictures, I’ll let the end user apply more! :)

I like the striped type boards with different woods that’s how I make them, I really don’t like the ones with wood turned 20 different ways, those are good lookin boards keep up the good work, have a good day
