I hope that with this entry I am now an official member of the ‘Spagnuolo Cutting Board Club’! LOL!
It measures 13.5” X 11” X 1” and made of Maple and Cherry with Maple for the end pieces. It’s finished with several coats of Tried & True, a beeswax and linseed blend and buffed when dried.
It was a fun project and it was so well received that I expect I’ll be making more of them!
Thanks for looking!
Update: After only a couple of days of use which included several washings (in the sink) the Tried & True finish doesn’t appear to be holding up as well as it has on other side-grain cutting boards I have made. Either I didn’t allow enough to soak in (though I doubt this) or it just doesn’t handle the end grain well. I’ll refinish and try food grade mineral oil or Walnut oil.
Update II: I found that several liberal soakings in mineral oil did the trick!
