    cutting board for friends of ours

    back on saturday, my wife's church was having a bit of a fish fry lunch to raise funds for an upcoming get together, and boy was it nippy! when we got up, it was around 30 degrees. i wasn't too enthused about driving her to church. when we got there, we found that i was the only one who gave in to their spouse that morning. when we went to the park where this event was being held, we found that they needed more help. we both pitched in, she helped with the fish, and after i got back with the last box of burnable odds and ends, cutting board, and good knife, i was put to cutting tomatoes, onions, cucumbers (salad stuff), and chopping cilantro (can't stand the taste of it). after everything was under way, i made sure the fires (2 cooking, 1 warming) were going good. after a bit, one of the gals asked if i could make her a cutting board, about the size of the bbq setup. i said ok, and here it is. it's just a shade under 14" by 24". she should be happy with it.

    just the usual, plain old, time tested mineral oil. gave it a good heavy coat, let it set for a while, then wiped it down.

    If she's not happy with it, there's something wrong with her, not the board. Nice work.

    Nice looking cutting boards. I like the variety of woods and their orientation.

    I read somewhere there's a gene that makes a person either like or hate cilantro. Funny. I like it, my daughter hates it.

    Nice board, by the way.

    thanks ken, for me it has a cross between a metallic and soapy kind of taste.
