These are the first cutting boards I’ve made. The square one is walnut and maple with purpleheart accents. The longer one is just walnut and maple. I enjoyed making these and I’m ready to get some more done.

Good job Dave! I’ll be making my first side grain boards soon, hope they look as nice as yours.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the kind words. They’re finished with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner from Lowe’s. It’s a mix of mineral oil, carnuba, and bees wax. I like the finish but it’s kind of pricey so I’m going to stick with just mineral oil only next ones.

Very nice! I am about to begin my first project and hope it comes out at least half as nice as yours.
