I have been making a cutting board from some scrap red oak and so far, so good. I did some checking on the internet and I read somewhere that red oak is not really good for cutting boards due to being very porous. I just wanted to see if any of you have an opinion about this? Also, the wood has a strong smell to it and I wonder if the smell will "calm down" after I treat it with mineral oil??? This board is made along the grain, I didn't make it using the end grain. Opinions please.
No announcement yet.
