A commissioned maple and walnut cutting board 18×24 x 1.75 thick, for chopping
beef from the BBQ.
After ripping to size on the table saw, I planed with my #7 Bailey plane and it made for a better join, amazing.
It was a fun build.
The maple was acquired from fellow LJer Bob.

Nicely done. Do you have something other than mineral oil on it to give it that shine?

Thank you for the comments, I appreciate them all.

I made 4 finger cut outs because of the cutting board’s size and that was a good call.
Emmet’s Good Stuff was used as the first finish and then I applied mineral oil and the
board was saturated with both.

As the board absorbs the mineral oil, more is adding to ensure a good coating. The picture
was taken when the board was wet.

Thanks again.
