Yep another cutting board, with “feet” this time.I took a little break from the tablesaw project to finish this guy . It has been sitting for a couple weeks begging to be sanded.
I included a pic of the “feet” (rubber door bumper things) It took me a while to find somthing the size i liked. they come in a four pack…how convenient….

walnut and maple 1.25” thick .

I’ve heard of boards warping from sitting on a wet countertop so I think feet are definitely the way to go. Most cutting boards projects on here don’t show the bottoms so I don’t know what most people do, but I’d like to hear opinions. Nice board by the way.

It doesn’t matter if the counter top is wet or dry..If you leave the board sitting on the large flat side it will warp. Mostly from the lack of air circulating around the wood…I know this from experience. If you dont put feet on the bottom, the boards should be stored on a side edge standing up. I have a rather large board I made for my kitchen and for a couple years I laid it right on the counter and it would always warp…not allot but enough to notice..and the last time I sanded and oiled it I decided to put feet on it..ironically enough, I use the exact same bumpers from Home Depot that you used! Since putting feet on my board, it stays dead flat and looks and works better….doesn’t slide on the counter anymore. Now unless someone says they are going to use both sides of the board I always put feet on it.

I found the feet in picture #3 ( at Ace Hardware. They look like wood from the side with a rubber gripper bottom. Worked well for me.
