This is a serving tray and cutting board I made for my boss. Both are made from walnut and soft maple (which I was suprised to find had a little figure). I finished the cutting board with mineral oil and bee’s wax, and the serving tray is finished with 5 coats of tung oil.

Great looking projects. I hope your boss paid for these and they were not just “gifts!” What is the size of the board and tray?
