These are the cutting boards we made for our future daughter-in-law for Christmas.
Here they are before oiling.
We bought a scroll saw last summer and finally got it set up to make these. We traced a couple of my cutting boards onto an oak board for the pattern. When Gary came in with the new boards and asked me if I liked them, I was thrilled. I loved them and told him we may have to make some for me! Gary did the initial sanding on the belt sander and I did a little final touchup by hand. Then I oiled them with mineral oil and after that soaked in, I waxed them with beeswax. That is supposed to close up the pores of the wood some, so bacteria can't get in. I think they turned out wonderful!
Have a "cut-free" day!
