    Cutting Board -

    I built a couple of these for family and friends. They are end-grain\butcher block style cutting boards. Never thought I would use a belt sander with 80 grit paper on a shop project, but this stuff is hard! Black walnut and white oak with several coats of mineral oil. Block are 1.5" thick.

    I am pretty happy with the results. Even the little boards weigh a ton!

    Great board, Doug. Not much chance of that one wearing out in the next few centuries, huh? I'll bet the recipients will be very happy with them.
