Not much to say about it…its a cutting board :). Up until now, everything that i have made has had some size to it..I wanted to do something that was a bit smaller, I have also heard that you aren’t a true woodworker until you have made a cutting board. I guess I have made it :).

It made from Maple and Mahogany. 4 coats of Mineral Oil. I used 3/4” rubber feet on the bottom so it won’t slide around. All in all I think it turned out pretty good for my first cutting board (second if you count the one I messed up, oh well).

Thanks for looking! How often do you think I will need to re-apply oil to it?

Looks great, nice work. I re-oil mine about once a year, or whenever it looks like it needs it.

I guess “as it looks like it needs it” is the most consistent answer I have found. That’s what I’ll go with :) thanks!

What are the dimensions? Can you post a picture of the 3/4” rubber feet? Are they adhesive based or screwed in?

Very nice board!!

I use rubber feet from Lee Valley… They are clear and stick on, but I follow them in with a #10×3/4” stainless steel screw.

The view from “down under” looks like possibly Ipe to me, that’s why I asked : )
Nice looking board.

Nice CB. I tend to agree with Dusty, it looks like IPE. All the mahogany I have seen did not have that much of a grain pattern, but who is to say it is not american mahogany.
