My second cutting board. this is made from purple heart that came from benches in Nashville, they were being thrown out. Also has maple and white oak. Mineral oil finish.

Nice – wish I could find someone throwing out purpleheart benches – what a score.

Great stuff. And what in the world was Nashville using purpleheart for benches? That makes no more sense than the idea that they are now throwing them away!
