This one was made with Cherry, Walnut and Curly Maple. I’ve been using these rubber feet and they work great. The board will not move unless you want it to. Found them at Home Depot, 4 for $1.98. I love the way the Cherry came out. I’m still learning new things each project I do and I’m thankful that I can still work at it. Finished with mineral oil. The lady at church that I gave it to said it was too nice to use?

Very nice, Steve !!! I also like the feet. I’ve been using clear, half-sphere cabinet door bumpers, also from Home Depot. I superglue them in place although they’re supposedly self-adhesive.

Do you have any suggestions for cleaning your cutting boards? I love all the boards I’m seeing on LumberJocks, but for serious food prep I always use something I can toss in the dishwasher.

Very nice board.

Many want them for looks anyway, you don’t need them for microwave food.

Dishwasher? No. Mild soap and warm water does the trick. If it’s sealed good that should be fine.

Nice board Steve, Like your use of the rubber feet, this is something that i have done with most of my boards for a long time. I just use a little different approach on mine. This sure helps to keep the board from moving, and keeps it level with uneven surfaces, along with preventing scratched countertops, and tables.

Nice job, Steve! I love the contrasting woods. (In fact, it’s one of my favorite combinations of woods.) And I believe the lady at church is right — that board will never be touched with a knife.
