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!

Of all the Spagnuolo inspired cutting boards I’ve seen, this one is my favorite. The use of one solid end piece and the way every edge is rounded over is what stands out to me. Great design.

The solid end strips set it apart from the other spag boards. Nice.

Yessiree , this design really tops the spag boards I’ve seen to date !! The additional ends really add a lot to this piece !
