1st End Grain CB's, Spalted Maple and Walnut

These are my first end grain cutting boards. Learned a lot! Walnut and spalted maple, the spalt left patterns almost like marble. Finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish, pretty satisfied (more so with the finish than some of minor minor sanding lines, but hey, it’s a cutting board). If I decide to make more of these I’ll do about 6-10 at once and visit the nearby drum sander and save a ton of time. They are 12” x 1 3/16” x 18” (+/- 1”)

Thanks for looking, all questions/comments welcome!

Hey look, it works!

Nice looking boards Grant.

I do have a question though for others that might be able to answer is it wise to mix spalting wood with food products? I know it can’t get wet as it will reactivate the spores correct? I am thinking though with a cutting board being saturated in oil it might not matter.

I don’t believe that the spalted wood is a problem.

Great looking board Grant

Good question, I really really soaked the boards the first time, I let it pool on it and added it to where it soaked it in for about 40 minutes, then 2-3 more wipe on coats. I feel comfortable with them. Interesting thought though, definitely merits a good answer.

Great looking cutting boards! Love the marble effect of the maple and it’s perfect with walnut. Great work!
