I still had to complete two projects that I kept in a corner of the studio for the past few months : Two cutting boards end grain .
The first is a mixture of four types of wood : Oak , Walnut , Cherry and Pine Finnish . The second is only in Finnish pine.
I tested a new finish on these two boards , a first layer of fondur that can clog the pores of the wood and make it more resistant to water (usually no more water enters ) and three layers of one of the few oil finish noted ” suitable for food contact ” (basically you can lick and bite without the risk of catching buttons).
This is one of the few labeled ” suitable for food contact ” oils sold in Europe . This oil provides more extra finish !
Both boards are composed of four species that I love :
- Walnut by its dark side and its purple hues.
- Oak by smelling it when it works and the complexity of its fibers.
- The Finnish pine contrasts and streaked appearance.
- And finally the cherry in multiple colors , reminiscent of the fireplace .
The first board is composed of four species. It measures 32 cm x 30 cm x 2.4 cm.
The second measure 29 cm x 18 cm x 2.5 cm. This size is ideal when food destined to be thrown in a pan cut. Compact and extremely robust
In this series of pictures is still missing two oil finish coats.
