52 Create – my weekly creative output for 2011. Shortly before our move, I was trying to use up some of my scrap wood as it wasn’t worth moving it, but I couldn’t bear to throw it away. I offered my brother a cutting board and he gave me the dimensions so it would fit in his kitchen. In the end I had to make it a bit narrower in order to fit through my planer, and I ran out of wood so the length was a tad shorter than planned.
I used walnut and maple for this cutting board. The long narrow strips were a last minute addition as I found an extra piece of maple and was trying to extend the length of the board. I put some rubber feet on the bottom so it wouldn’t slide around on the counter top. The board is coated in food grade mineral oil.
