I’d planned to get a round of golf in this morning and left the house about 6:30A. Unfortunately after six holes I had to leave due to lightning, followed by pouring rain that lasted most of the day. Last week I’d planed and cut enough maple and carribean rosewood box side sets for eight boxes. What I had left was some fairly thin long strips. With my new “free” time this morning because of the shortened round of golf, I decided to use those “cutoffs”.
The cutting board here is the result. It’s all end-grain and you can’t see it very well in the pictures, especially in the end grain, but carribean rosewood has some amazing but subtle green and red hues in the grain….even in the end grain.
I finished it with about 20 minutes worth of hand rubbing buther block oil into the wood until it would absorb no more, then wiped it dry.
