Unlike my first attempt at making a cutting board, this one didn’t explode! (Picture 4. Of course this one is edge grain and long grain, unlike my end grain attempt. ;)
I’m pretty happy with it and my wife loves it. I used Red Oak, Pecan, and Hackberry. I finished it with Butcher Block oil and let it cure. I used a 1/2 ” round over router bit. I planed the sides to get a straight surface for the glue up and I happy with the results. With my new table saw I actually got straight cuts and I feel like I learned a few things.
The next one will have recessed hand holds, maybe. The pics don’t show it, but it had a nice contrast between the grain patterns of the Hackberry and Pecan.
-- I thank God for everything, especially all of you!
