Here’s a couple cutting boards that I made for Xmas presents.
Maple & Walnut and just coated with butcher Block oil.
I have two more to make and they will be Cherry and Walnut, which I think will be prettier.

Also, I’ll have tighter jopints with my new Grizzly G0656X 8” Jointer with Spiral Cutterhead.

Walnut and Cherry is this week-end. Hmm, the Walnut or Cherry as the primary wood? I’ll have to do a mock up and see which I prefer I reckon. I’m kind of wishing I would have done the Walnut as the thicker boards on the first two.

Fishinbo thanks.

I have a quandary yall; I took the cutting boards inside and now they are starting to curl. What the heck – over?
The boards have 4 coats of butcher block, I wasn’t expecting this. I’m letting them adapt to the inside some more and hoping that they un-curl, flipping them over daily (right). i might have to add weight on top of them?
This is depressing, they’re a hair over 3/4” thick so it’s totally unexpected.
