    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?
    Nice.

    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 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.
    For a hard wood, Bubinga is not bad to work with.
    Plus as it gets old and develops a patina the colors look even richer.
