Very nice work on both your parts.

very nice i like the design what glue and finish did you use?
9/11/01, never forget.
That's some real nice work. You done a great job too. I like the pattern. I'm curious as to what finish you ised. I've been using mineral oil only. Here's my latest cutting board. Same materials, maple, walnut and cherry.PB240148.JPG
Thanks all. Glue was Titebound III and the finish was mineral oil, followed by beeswax.
Both those boards are nice, fellas!! Do you plane them after glue-up? I remember someone asking about plaining end-grain in such an instance...what was the outcome of that?
I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
Both boards are very nice guys.
Thats real sharp work. I tried the same but the results were not so good.I haven't given up yet though!
Where do you get plain mineral oil from? I tried at the drug store but couldn't find any that was unscented.
Check at another pharmacy and here's a little hint. It's called "white mineral oil" and is clear in color. Normally it's near to the laxatives and enemas. You don't want to use "baby oil" which smells nice for cutting boards. If your drug store doesn't have it, try the pharmacy department of a large market, or look in Target or Walmart. White mineral oil has been around a long time and people have taken it to help with constipation, and other medical uses. You want to make sure on the label that is says "food grade and USP". The brand that comes to mind is Squibb.
I hope this is helpful. Before anyone ingests any of it, be sure to read and understand all warnings on the label(s). After rubbing into your cutting board, be sure to rub off any excess with a clean cloth.
Another place to ask would be a steak house restaurant or a butcher shop.

If you are asking about power planing, yes I admit I tried that. ONCE!!
It is an ugly and somewhat dangerous sight. At least it proved to me that serious kickback is possible with a thickness planer.
Not to mention a lot of work that went into the board was lost. :-(
And I knew better, just had to try for myself.
