Drawbored Breadboard end cutting board made of Dibetou wood with through haunched mortised and tenon joinery ala Paul Sellers. It is finished with just 2 coats of mineral oil. This is the 2nd cutting board like this I’ve made this month for Christmas gifts. I like this one far better than my first and it turned out a lot better too. I have one more to make and I’ve got this down to about 3-4 late nights of work, so 15-20 hours a piece. FYI, I picked up about pack of this wood from my local lumber yard for $1.50 board foot and it’s turned out to be a great wood to work with. Similar in hardness to I would say oak. Pares and chops easily also planes well with very little tear out. This stack came with some nice 15”-16” wide x 16’ long boards which I’ll be using for hopefully my tool chest. If there was more there, I’d go back and buy whatever they had left.
