Just messing around
Last night when cooking dinner I had a thought.
I needed to cut a handful of small stuff and didn't want to use the bigger cutting board.
Figured I needed a smaller light duty cutting board that I could clean easily and maybe use as a sandwich or cheese board.
I had a piece of thin maple so I just sanded and finished to 400 grit.
Future ones I might put a hole at one end so it could be hung up when not in use.
Mark, you are a genius!
I love the mini-board sandwichy thingy. I would totally buy one of theses. Oh and some utensils to match?
this is just sick, having access to so much high quality woods.
Spending time cutting and sanding my mind starts to wander.
A few years ago I would have been unable to comprehend the thought of people collecting high end kitchen knives.
So I was thinking.....
What about spatulas?
I don't know of a single person with a good spatula collection.
I started another project.
A one piece cutting board. About 12 x 24.
I have a lot of Bubinga in the basement. I think some of it may find it's way into a cutting board.
This is a piece of Bubinga that was marked as sold.
A guitar maker wanted it but never came back with the mooooola.
Now I am kind of glad he never came back.
The more I sand this the better the figure is looking.
When I finish sanding and oil this it will be a lot darker. Kind of red and burgundy.
I think you should.

Plus as it gets old and develops a patina the colors look even richer.
