Love the oil....

I suppose by posting a board I have officially joined the club…
Made several boards before and this isn’t my biggest or in my opinion my best work.

However, just wanted to share one because I know I cannot be the only one who feels this way.
There is nothing I enjoy more in the shop than that first oil on a cutting board.
Watching the wood soak in it in and the grain come alive, changing color …

Absolutely! I’ll never forget my first couple boards. Finally looking at them and nodding and thinking “I s’pose I ought to put stuff on ‘em.”

Then a couple minutes later: “I made THAT?”

Haven’t gotten over it since.

I agree with you. Applying the first coat of almost any finish on almost any project is my second favorite part of woodworking. My favorite part? When the project is completed!
