    Birthday present for our son.

    Our son lives in Austin TX and has a birthday coming up next week. I decided to make a cutting board for his. The woods are walnut, maple, and bubinga. I chose to make it using end grain because end grain cutting boards hide cuts better. It's finished with food grade mineral oil and then a mixture of that mineral oil and beeswax. The wood turned a bit darker than I expected, but I'm still pleased with the results:

    Seeing as I'm not available to travel right now, I think that's a GREAT gift. And you have a gift as well - it's flat out gorgeous!

    I keep going back and studying it - oh heck, I'll just download the pics..

    It looks like you've included feet, or no - optical illusion from the beveled sides?

      I wish I could see what it looks like. I'm assuming it's one of your awesome cutting boards. I really like seeing your work, RonB . That darn hacker sure took some of the fun out of this site.

              Wow! Beautiful! I know it’s not orange, but to me, it’s a hint of orange. Mahogany and orange. Like VT.

              Beautiful!! Very cool gift!!!!

              RonB edit the original post, delete the pic, save. Then edit again, and attach the photo a second time, then save. That was the way I got some photos back on a post that they wouldn't show on.

                I almost wish I hadn't seen it now, it's so nice! That could cause a MCS/GAS flareup for sure.
