With all of us spending more time at home this year, I find myself spending time in the kitchen and cooking more than ever before. That why I decided to dedicate this year’s DIY-holiday-gifts-you-can-make-out-of-wood edition to gifts for the kitchen.

I made everything out of scraps of Ash wood combined with some Walnut. All the food contact items were finished with butcher block conditioner, while the coasters were finished with OSMO.

Very nice, Osmo used again:) Like your patterns, think I’ve got 5 or 6 styles so far, even right and left hand models:)
Have not used Ash yet still using up some Jaroba and Maple scraps.

Nice job. Saw the video before I came over tonight, like all of yours, correct on time, presentation, and ideas. Plus anyone could follow along.

Is it milk paint? Or any other food-safe paints you recommend?
