Cutting Board from scraps

I have seen several projects on LJ of cutting boards made from scraps and I thought it was finally time that I tried. My projects so far have been mostly red oak and walnut so that is all that I had. I realize that oak is not the best wood for a cutting board but I used what I had lying around. I previously had mad a large cutting board at a class at Woodcraft but it is really too large for our kitchen so it is safely put away for later. This one is about 10”x12” so is more suitable for our counter space. I didn’t spend a lot of time on this project and as a result it is not perfectly flat, but it will do for now. The project was easy enough that I may do another one later and spend more time with it.

When I was much younger I used to make things the way I was told not to, just to see what happened. More often than not, nothing much did. Keep it fed with the Howards, definitely no long submersion’s, and it should do ok.

Yeah that’s what I was thinking. Just because something is not normally done a certain way doesn’t mean that it won’t work. And I can always make another later if needed, after all practice makes perfect as they say (or at least better hopefully).
