I've been making several cutting boards lately. I finished four over the weekend and have a fifth ready for final sanding and oiling. Mostly I have just been doing a standard checker board pattern, but I did experiment a little on a maple and cherry board.
I finish the cutting boards with mineral oil.
Experimental cherry and maple cutting board before applying oil finish.
The one I still have to finish is made from maple and walnut. It maybe my new favorite.
I am running out of scraps so this maybe the last batch of cutting boards until I do some bigger projects and build the scrap pile back up. I've also been working on some Christmas gifts and will have to wait to post anything about those.
