Dimensions 40×23x2cm, made of oak, finish food friendly wood oil. I put small walnut stripes bellow, just to strenghten week neck points. Also, I made some grooves on left and right bottom sides, just to ease grit.

You flatten me… the missus fattens me… either way I’m a lame duck!

Coll idea maj’, and a pleasant diversion from all those end-grain cutting boards.

BUT… the feet aren’t webbed… though those stilts will keep the tail feathers dry!

Nice work Ivan,
I,ve often wondered about what to coat food trays with. Is that food safe oil readily available?

Sorry pottzy, must disagree with you this time… Mineral oil is not classified as food safe (at least for you humans).
I used to use this dedicated woodworking oil,

but at $20+ for 250ml, I traded it in for grapeseed oil (even little boxes sell them),

which costs around $6.49 per 1L…
I have had no issues with the grapeseed though its not as nice to sniff as the Wood Wipe but the onions quickly take away the aroma. Furthermore it doesn’t go rancid like other cooking oils unless you gargle with it, spit it back in the bottle and shelve it in the sun for a few months.

Damn, I may have actually provided a meaningful comment… what the hell did they do to me in that bloody hospital?
