I still had to complete two projects that I kept in a corner of the studio for the past few months : Two cutting boards end grain .
The first is a mixture of four types of wood : Oak , Walnut , Cherry and Pine Finnish . The second is only in Finnish pine.

I tested a new finish on these two boards , a first layer of fondur that can clog the pores of the wood and make it more resistant to water (usually no more water enters ) and three layers of one of the few oil finish noted ” suitable for food contact ” (basically you can lick and bite without the risk of catching buttons).
This is one of the few labeled ” suitable for food contact ” oils sold in Europe . This oil provides more extra finish !

Both boards are composed of four species that I love :
- Walnut by its dark side and its purple hues.
- Oak by smelling it when it works and the complexity of its fibers.
- The Finnish pine contrasts and streaked appearance.
- And finally the cherry in multiple colors , reminiscent of the fireplace .

The first board is composed of four species. It measures 32 cm x 30 cm x 2.4 cm.
The second measure 29 cm x 18 cm x 2.5 cm. This size is ideal when food destined to be thrown in a pan cut. Compact and extremely robust

In this series of pictures is still missing two oil finish coats.

Nice! I like the abstract look of the pine.

Very cool! How dense is Finnish pine? Most of the pine available in Florida is too soft for cutting boards, or so I’m told.

Nice work! How well does the pine hold up with knives? The grains look amazing!

Thank you for your messages!
This pine is relatively easy to hold up.

They both look great. Like the attractive wood colors and cool design. The great finish really made the pretty grains pop.
