So I’ve been ‘making stuff’ for a while but here is one of my first woodworking projects I did about a year and a half ago. I made this cutting board for a friend and his wife when they got married. It’s cherry and walnut finished with mineral oil / beeswax finish.

I’ll post some other stuff as I can. Thank you all for sharing, I’ve been watching and learning from your posts, and getting the ‘I can do that’ bug that motivates me to make things.

That’s first class. I really like the diagonal-ness! It has a substantial, expensive look too. I like it!
