Since it’s cutting board month on WWW, I decided to post some of mine.
This cutting board was my very first cutting board ever. it was done in 2010. I did not take many pictures back then…
Of course I got the pattern wrong and what else but my wife liked it.
I looked at the following blog when I did it:
Degoose: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/16520, definitely the creme of the crop when it comes to cutting board.
Mary Anne : http://lumberjocks.com/LateNightOwl/blog/18277
Both Mary Anne and Poroskywood have very detail blogs on this particular style of board.
It take a couple of hours excluding glue drying time.
A lot of bandsaw work, very light sanding. The only thing tedious was the glue up and clamping.
Used dark Walnut, maple and strips of cherry. Those strips were cut on my table saw .
It was finished with mineral oil followed by 2 coats of mineral oil mixed with bees wax.
