Flame Birch and Red Birch with a little flame in it.
First time trying GF Salad Bowl Finish rather than Mineral Oil on a cutting board.
Most likely the last unless requested by customer.
I also made a second board for Shedina that I will post later.
Thank you for looking.
Critiques and comments always welcome : )

Very nice, Len. I love the shimmer on the flame birch.
What was the problem with the salad bowl finish? I’m curious… I always use mineral oil… cheap and
easy to get.

The flame just shimmer’s in your CB’s. I am also curious as to the GF salad bowl finish.

Your awfully quite these days Len but I’m glad to see your still making dust. Also glad to see that there face grain and that there non symmetrical. Very pretty indeed – they do glow with that finish. I’ll be quite now.
