Good o’l original design from the Marc. I think this design is a right of passage into receiving the cutting board bug. I actually get multiple requests for this even though I have other designs i’ve done.

Yellow Heart and Cherry, glued with Gorilla Glue, two coats of 50/50 Salad Bowl Finish and two coats of Mineral Oil w/ Beeswax.

The pattern created by the Yellow Heart sap wood grew on me when I was making it.

These where for a wedding shower, I like the big/small board combo package.

i use gorilla glue for repairs for antique furniture like cracked joints loose rungs and so on. Just curious about why you use it for cutting boards. Great looking boards!

I like it because it’s waterproof and expands into any nooks and crannies that might not be 100% perfect, since people will be cutting food on it. Or maybe i’m just making it up in my head, and I might try titebond 2 next time.

Ev, Franklin’s Titebond product selection more detail but here are a couple of key parameters:
Titebond II, “passes water resistance test” and “FDA approved for indirect food contact (cutting boards)”
Titebond III, “proven waterproof” and “FDA approved for indirect food contact (cutting boards)”

For the cutting boards I pass on to others, the “approved for indirect food contact” is most important to me.
