Close to the final step!

The cutting board was sanded down to about 220 grit using an orbital sander.

After sanding the board was cleaned off with mineral spirits.

Finish (50/50 salad bowl finish and mineral spirits) was applied in three coats.
1. Applied a heavy coat till cutting board pulled the finish through to the bottom.
  • Waited 24 hours
    2. Applied a second lighter coat.
  • Waited 24 hours
  • Light sanding with 400 grit.
    3. Applied the third coat

This picture was taken just after the third coat was applied.

**The process was of course TheWoodWhisperer process. Cutting board Video can be found at the link below.
