Cutting Board

My first cutting board, quite a learning experience. First I confirmed that I don’t have enough clamps… Second, don’t do a final glue up when you’re tired. I thought it was all straight but the next day when I took the clamps off I noticed I was off on a row. Anyhow, on to my next one, going to try designing my own.
Woods are Walnut, Maple and Purple Heart. 4 costs of butcher block oil and a coat of oil/bees wax mix.

-- Give a someone a piece of wood, they'll make fire. Teach them to work with wood and they'll buy saws, hammers,planners, chisels, and more.

Real nice cutting boards. I know what you mean about working the shop when you are tired…that’s when mistakes happen the most!

cheers, Jim

Very nice board. I’m glad I read the post because I would’ve missed the purple heart. It blended in with the walnut in the picture. Nice job. I just finished my first cutting board as well and used the same combo of oils.

Your board looks good. You just never know when a piece you are gluing up will slip a bit.
