I finished a few cutting boards over the past month or so, and though I’d share them.
I started with the Walnut, Maple & Cherry board, which I made as an Xmas present to my mom. I had some left over scraps, and made the smaller checkered board from those.
Over the holidays, I got a lot of responses from friends asking me to make more, so I just finished the other two yesterday. The second pair are Walnut, Figured Maple, and Padauk. I know the face grain won’t hold up to chopping as well as edge/end grain, but when I found that piece of walnut, I couldn’t bring myself to slice it into strips.
Very new to all of this, but these have been fun. I don’t have a planer or a drum sander, so they’ve all been RO sanded to as flat as I can make them. None of them are perfect, but they sit flat, and don’t wobble, which is enough for me at the moment.
Anyway, hope you guys like them.
