After making several cutting boards last year, requests came in for some this year.
I did these in early December, at the same time. Both are end grain cutting boards that measure about 8 1/2in x 11in, by 1in thick.
The first one is for my best friend and his wife in Tacoma, WA. The edges are in Cherry, and the checkers are Black Walnut and Hard Maple. It is finished with a mineral oil finish.
The second one is for my mother-in-law to send to her good friend in Houston, TX. The edges are Black Walnut, and the checkers are Hard Maple and Cherry. It is finished with a salad bowl finish.
Both parties received their cutting board and were very happy with it. I just wish I would have had my branding iron, to sign my name to them...... oh well maybe next year.
