I made this for my stepson and his girlfriend. Her parents visited us around the holidays and brought me a few pieces 3/4” purple-heart hardwood flooring they had left over from a project. I ran it through my surface planer to remove the finish and trimmed off the tongue and groove from both sides. I incorporated the purple-heart into their cutting board. They supposedly have a bunch more that I am anxious to get!. This board is about 11” x 12” and 1 1/4” thick. I do find that the walnut I have is VERY opened grained and it requires a lot of coats of the mineral oil and paraffin wax mixture to seal those pores of the end grain. I like to keep the board width 12” or less so I can run the first glue up with “edge grain” though the surface planer, saves on sanding.
