In the middle of other things I’m doing, my wife asked if I could make a couple of cutting boards for gifts. Considering she keeps me WELL fed and other things, I naturally said yes, ( actually there was some slight hesitation but I didn’t want to push my luck ). I grabbed some cut offs and got to it. One is some slightly birds eye maple and red oak, the other is the same maple, red oak and some padauk. Did these in two days. Neither recipient really cooks much so will probably used more for show. Used my own mixture of food grade mineral oil and food grade bee wax for the finish. The pictures were taken in a rush so excuse the chair as a background.
