Well as I was working on cleaning the shop over the weekend, I know shocking, I came across several pieces of scraps and decided to make something useful. The cutting board with the handle was a quick copy of one that my grandmother had gotten years ago. Its made of Red oak, Black Walnut, and a piece of cherry. The other cutting board is my first attempt at making an end grain board. I’m not sure if it was done correctly, but it stayed together and looks pretty good for not knowing what I was doing. It is made of hickory and then a strip of cherry. The finish was another new experience. I refined some raw beeswax from a friend of a friend’s hive, and mixed it with mineral oil. I believe I was a bit heavy with the beeswax in the ratio, but it looks good for not knowing what I was doing again.
Any advice on the end grain Cutting board assembly and finishing is much appreciated
