I forgot to post this one. Cutting boards seem to be rather popular here and I’ve put the picture in a few threads with the statment I need to post this one to my projects. This is 15+ year old White Oak end grain butcher block cutting board & has never needed to be resurfaced even with near daily use in a family of 5. It’s freahly coated with Boos Block oil for the photo and gets re-oiled about every two months

Nice lookin’ board. Looks really good for 15 years old.

Great looking board…hard to believe it’s held up so well!

Love the profile picture of the big sweetie too…I used to have a rott/mix named
Valentine. She never met a stranger.

Thanks Ya’ll, its a testimony to an endgrain board’s lifespan. I’ve got two 60” x 30” longrain butcher block tables & they need to be sanded every two to three years.

The pic, that’s Sofie, rhymes with Dopey, and she’s my second rottie, my last pic was Mystic who passed from Osteosarcoma… there is no better breed for a family dog.

I have another Rott/mix, Imp, that has Canine Lymphoma, and goes tomorrow for her first IV Chemo treatment. She was on Cytoxan, which seemed to help. But a week after ending her treatment, her lymph glands in her neck were the size of large walnuts again. We’re hoping this new treatment will help.

Beautiful work! It’s hard to believe it still looks this good after 15 years. Looks as though you finished it this morning. I really like the face designs too. Well done!

Theresa, I hope your family member can get comfort and recovery from the treatment, cancer is so hard to deal with.

Kiefer, PURE DUMB LUCK… I jointed and clamped together the 1” x 2” x 50” stock and then sliced them into 3” pieces and discovered the darker pattern about half way through the blank

Blockhead, I did oil it up for the pic, it gets a white cast when it needs to be re-oiled
