I had some old fir door panels around that I’ve planed down into cutting boards. The door was from about the 1930s-40s. I used a salad bowl finish on the surface.

I like to see all wood used in some purpose.

It is always good to recycle.

I wonder if Fir is hard enough to stand up to the ware a cutting board gets.

It will defanatly wear faster than a hardwood especially with it being cross grain. This board will get more use with cheese and such so hopefully it’ll extend the life.

Jason, with all the crazy laminated cutting boards being made today it is nice to see someone step back and make a cutting board that shows the wood for what it is. I like the wild designs on some of them, but to be honest my favorite cutting boards are simple. Wharton Esherick made some that I liked and yours reminds me of that simple organic use of the wood. It is fun to have a backstory to something you have made that isn’t “I got this slab at Home Depot” ;) Nice Job.
