River Birch Cutting Board

This is a River Birch cutting board I just took out of the mineral oil bath. I would not normally post about an everyday cutting board but the grain configuration on this is pretty cool. The front and back have great grain flow. This will be a gift for a relative. I told them already that I expect them to use it; I don’t to hear about how it’s too pretty to cut on. LOL.
Although it is. :)

Made of River Birch and finished with mineral oil.

Thanks for viewing.

I love birch, so this is certainly worth posting. Almost too nice to cut on though ;-)

That birch does have some pretty grain. BTW, I am up for adoption.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Very nice grain patterns on this board and the color I like as well. I’ve received the comment as well ” too pretty to use, have to use it” too funny hardest gift to use but easy to give away. Cheers.

Nice looking cutting board. Have you ever buffed your boards after the mineral oil has dried?

It would be hard to use it that first time. I too love the colors and you did a wonderful job. What else do you do to the cutting board to prepare it for use, besides the mineral oil bath?

Hawaiilad and Kelly, I don’t do anything to them but treat them with mineral oil and wipe the excess off then let them dry for a few hours and wipe off any bleed-out.
