My contribution to the swap was cutting board and matching cheese cutter. They were made from walnut, cherry, hackberry and soft maple. I finished the with homemade beeswax mineral oil 2 parts oil and 1 part beeswax. I cooked it in a crockpot then placed it in tins.

I just heard about Hackberry in the turning swap.

Got this wonderful piece from Gary (Double G) and now I got more Hackberry from George! I’m going to have to get some of that and try it out!

Really great cutting boards George, they make my eyes go sorta wonky staring at them like looking at a maze pattern for mice. I would just say they are A-maze-ing!

Fantastic work WM1. A great entry for a BBQ swap to be sure! I love the pattern on these and the wood selections are spot on :-)
