Since there have been a few cutting boards posted here recently, I thought I might show one of mine.
This one I made for my mother-in-law who is fascinated by exotic woods... I used sheuda, panga-panga, and ebony for this project. I experimented for quite a while with scrap wood to find the right finish to use. Every oil based finish that I tried turned the sheuda into a lifeless black mess. A tip from a fellow woodworker got me to look into wax finishes. I ended up going with just a good coat of plain old beeswax. Thanks for looking.
