The first piece worth posting outta the shop! I’ve made a bunch of things, but what better project for a first post than a cutting board? :)
I’m not sure why the joints are brighter than the center, but in the sanding process I noticed and kept it… I like it! I went with larger units of wood (Hard Maple) because I had a wide board, and I liked the look. I’m also thinking it’ll be a stronger board, as the large offset will make it hard for any single stress to break open a glue joint.
Gave it a few drinks of mineral oil, then rubbed on a homemade oil/beeswax mixture. So far so good!
