After years of woodworking and viewing hundreds of other LJ’s cutting boards on this site, I finally jumped into the LVDT club with a pair of boards. The boards were a good way to use up some pieces of scrap I’ve been hanging onto for quite some time now. I find it extremely hard to throw out any size piece of scrap. I made the first board for my girlfriend and made it using Maple, Cherry, Purple Heart and Sepele. The Second board was made for her best friend and is made up of Maple, Cherry and Purple Heart. Each board measures 12” x 16” and 5/8” thick. I would have liked to make the boards thicker but as I mentioned, they were made from scrap and the thickest scrap I had was 3/4”. Both boards are finished with Mineral oil and beeswax so hopefully they will last for years to come. I found some rubber feet at the local lowes that work nicely for these thinner boards and don’t make them sit up too high. Now to get back in the shop and start making a few more. End grain here we come. :o)

-- Are you going to use that piece of scrap?

Jeffery, nicely dun, welcome aboard. It’s a great way to use up those scraps, and not so scraps. I stopped by your old homestead the other day and found out that you had moved. To a place that had a shop. GOOD JOB.

End grain allows any thickness you want. I like the color balance of these boards.
