This was leftover walnut from a desk I’m building for the wife.

It was a practice piece testing my new domino joiner I bought to help make the desk.

It still needs a few more coats of cutting board wax.

Really got to cut this in strips, turn them on edge to expose the end grain and glue it back together if you are going to use it as a cutting board. Otherwise you will be cutting across the wood fibers and eventually you will be slicing off chucks of wood. Looks like you have a thick enough slab to still do that.

I like the cove on the bottom as a lifting aid , and the almost invisible joint. I like to use mineral oil and Beeswax on my boards. : ) Keep on building !!

Hi Bob,

This is what that was the leftover cutting box from.

I was getting a haircut and this was in the waiting room.

I don’t have a lathe, so changed the legs.
