Very good stuff- what is it finished with? Mineral Oil is food-safe and keeps a nice color of the wood.

Looks nice but you’re only half way there. If you leave it like that, long grain, it will scar up much quicker and you risk slicing out pieces of wood. You should cut it in strips, rotate and expose the end grain and glue it up again. Watch the Wood Whisperer’s video for more info. http://youtu.be/5B8oAJs3sik

Great job jumping in to the dark side…now you’ll have to spend all of your free time in the woodshop and start buying lots of tools you may never use…it gets quite addicting but very rewarding!
