My first attempt at a cutting board. Made from walnut and maple using plans from the Incra Projects and Techniques book. Pretty straight forward, mill the stock, cut varying width strips, glue it up, cut and flip the ends, more gluing, round over the edges, route the handles, plane, sand and finish.
I used Clapham’s Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish to finish and I like how it looks and the ease in applying.
Hardest part was the glue up, keeping everything square was a challenge. This project is a simple glue up, I cannot imagine how difficult some of the complex boards I see on here must be to glue up.
This project is for my wife who I need to keep happy so she continues to let me buy new tools!
