    That looks really cool!

    I have always wanted to rig up a shoestring end grain cutting board myself, but the reasons to buy from Dave just keep piling up. I was guilty of believing I can do it myself at first, but now, even if I had a full size workshop and all the materials and tools, I'd still want one of his.

    You are right there. I wanted one of Daves for a while now, but the missus is more apt at holding onto funds, then giving them for a "cutting board?" So I picked up a little here, a couple clamps there, a little rental here and there, and I got a board. It was a fun build, I learned alot! I did learn, Dave doesn't charge enough!!

    All done. Added some rubber feet, 3/4" bottom, and a 1" top. Used a forstner bit to recess them a bit so they wern't to high. Added last coat of board wax. I couldn't get over how fast this thing absorbed mineral oil! Almost 500ml. Hope that wasn't too much...

    Pierre, you are a talented custom cutler. If your wife can't see the justification for a cutting board, then God help us all.
