Oak from a wine processing at my work. The dark stripes were from right next to the bolt holes by which the oak was attached to a chain. I imagine that the wine penetrated more deeply there.

Oh man! You have SUCH a selling point!

“Wine Stained Cutting Boards!” 100% recycled from the wine industry!

Yuppies and Hipsters will pay TONS for these.

Very cool idea and a really nice board – really!

Seriously—it’s my first end-grain project! The thought never occurred to me. I do believe you have a point.

It came out great. Like the grains, figures and colors on that beautiful oak.

Have your say...
