More Live Edge Walnut Cutting/serving Boards A feiw years ago, my brother gave me a walnut log about 40 inches long and 12 inches in diameter. After storing it for while, I had it sawed into 1” boards and stacked them in the rafters in my garage, seperated by stickers. These boards are rustic, following the outside of the original log (bark removed), and showing the lighter sapwood along both edges. Each has a thumb/hanging hole and has been sanded to 220 before several applications of food grade cutting board oil. The two with the maple accent stripes are about 10-11 inches long, and the rest range from 12-16 inches. I guess my brother will get to choose his favorite.

Those are gorgeous! Newbie question…where would I get food-grade cutting board oil?

Chuck, thanks for the props….....I found cutting board/butcher block oil at my local home center….Menards. It is also available on line at Amazon. You can also use food grade mineral oil.
