Got this in from a friend to refurbish. I can tell you the owners really used the board and like onions and garlic.

Here is a before photo. The after photo will come tomorrow.

I think that's a gorgeous board-patina. Does a board in this shape REQUIRE refurbishment?

Here is a photo of the board after sanding, oiling and waxing. Did it need a refurb? There were some deep marks that needed to come out but overall it was still in good shape after three years of duty. Almost looks new.950

Awesome...what's your sanding protocol?

All different shades of walnut?

Very nice work. Agree that it looks almost new.

Awesome...what's your sanding protocol?

4 x 24 belt sander with 60 grit, followed by 100 then 120 grit. Random orbit sander with 100 then 120 grit followed by a 1/3 sheet pad sander with 120. Used a lot of the eraser stick to clean the belts and pads since each clogged quickly. Then soaked in the oil bath, allowed to drain overnight then waxed.
