Default Cutting boards for gifts....

I have been working on a few cutting boards this week. One for my sisters birthday, one is for a co-workers wife for their anniversary and one for mom just because I thought she needed one.

This is my first attempt at cutting boards. I was unsure of how to finish so I went to Rockler and the gentleman suggested Kerf's Wood Cream for the finish. www.kerfswoodcream.com

3 cutting boards in the finish sanded stage


Sisters cutting board for her birthday - Purple Heart and Curly Maple


Coworkers cutting board for his wife on their anniversary - Oak and Walnut


Mom's cutting board just because she is mom - Walnut, Curly Maple and Cherry

Those look great! Well done! You might want to look into something called "Salad Bowl Finish" that's put out by General Finishes or good 'ol mineral oil.

There's a video series called The Wood Whisperer that's out there and in two of the videos he works on a very cool end-grain cutting board like the checkerboard one you've got in your second photograph. In the videos, Marc covers everything from finishing to glue up very well.

Part 1: http://thewoodwhisperer.com/?p=89
Part 2: http://thewoodwhisperer.com/?p=93

It's a neat podcast that I watch regularly.

I think it likely that we shall be seeing a lot more of you're projects in the future, based on the lovely job that you have made of those cutting boards.

Nice bunch of cutting boards!

I guess it's a way to use up scrap (leftovers)...

Mineral Oil is the best way, IMHO, to finish them...

Have Fun,

OK, fine. I withdraw my question due to idiocy.
