So I finally made a cutting board. I used Maple and Walnut scraps I had in the garage/shop. It is all edge grained except for the end pieces. I used 4/4 material and the board is 1 1/4” thick, and 15 X 12” I was kinda surprised at the color the Maple took after I had sanded it. I guess that’s a leftover from the Walnut. I noticed my hands took on a bit of color as well. It was a fun project.

Shoot I built my cutting board 30 years ago before there was anything called the internet and Lumber Jocks were those guys that did log rolling and ax throwing.

Hint. Wash you projet down with naptha. It will not impact the grain and evaporates rather quickly. Thinner and alcahol will work also.

I do a lot of Ebony string banding and inlay work in Maple and believe me it does look nasty until I wash it down.

After noon Loyde. Thanks for the tip. I’ve already wiped it with mineral oil, several times and washed it a couple more. Is it to late to try the naptha trick? Will rubbing alcohol work as well? Thanks
