Time to make a few boards for Christmas, this one an order from another neighbor.
Maple, walnut, cherry, ash and purpleheart in the center, 15” x 20” x 1 1/2”.
Pic 1 is finished board
Pic 2 is prior to finish
Pic 3 the edge
Pic 4 the bottom.
First attempt at a juice groove, not as easy as it looks.
I have only my Dewalt ROS and a couple of hand planes to surface finish, so an end grain board this size usually takes around 30 hours to complete. I’ve always been happy with the result and even more glad when one is finished!
Finish is the usual GF Salad Bowl Finish, saturated from both sides then sanded, about 3 repeats of that.
To complete, tried Paul Clark's new finishing oil and wax this time, works very well and the aroma is most pleasant. Recommended!
Thanks for looking,
