Two more cutting boards. I made a 3rd for a wedding gift, but had to give it away before I could take a picture. Made out of maple and walnut or maple and purpleheart. Finished with a 3:1 ratio of mineral oil: beeswax. You can also see the brand my wife got me for Christmas last year. Makes them look almost professional. Ha!

Love how you feature the “imperfections” of the wood. They look awesome!

Thank you everyone for the compliments. I found a local guy that I get my lumber from. His dad cuts down trees for power lines, so he buys them from his dad and sells them for $2 a bf rough. Not a bad price, so I may get some “imperfections.” I love the brown streak in the maple.

Wiser, that board ended up being about 15 1/2×10 1/4×7/8 thick. One of my coworkers bought it, and I have 2 more orders now.

Thanks again for the compliments and the wealth of knowledge from fellow LJ’s.
