This is my first attempt at cutting boards. The large one is for my mother-in-law made from walnut and oak
with 4 coats of Howards beeswax conditioner .The smaller one is mostly walnut , maple and will be a
trivet or potholder
Boy do I need a small planer looking at a 13” rigid and a dewalt 734 any thoughts

-- KOOG plan today...survive tommorow

Nice cutting boards. when using maple, you have to go lightly on a planer or it will chip out. A big flat sander would be better for cutting boards!..( I wish I had one)....................Jim

Oak is not a good wood for cutting boards due to the open pores / grain. Keep up the good work !

M A N !!!! These boards turned out GREAT! You did a really nice job on these. I am impressed and now you have motivated me to try my hand at these. Again, a really good job!

Great job, I like them both. I have a Dewalt 734, almost 3 years now and couldnt be happier. I use a lot if reclaimed lumber and pallets so it’s a must for me. Not familiar with the Delta, but I am sure it would also give great results.
