    that's some heavy duty work there, but the end result is well worth it

    My sister had a similar project with a section of bowling alley she scrapped from an old local lane.

    Frickin awesome. What a beautiful board. Do I ever miss working on the old "butcher blocks" just don't see many more or these around any more. What a great project, props to you sir.

    Some interesting notes. I made a thin board butter mix out of mineral oil and beeswax. Treated 3 things: The table, my Boardsmith black walnut board, and my round bamboo board. The bamboo is 3 layer, edge grain construction. Anyway, the end grain Boardsmith was by far the fastest to absorb the mixture. Then the edge grain table, which after several weeks still feels waxy to the touch. The bamboo, it still feels like I just applied it. I'm guessing because you've got the higher glue ratio with the small pieces of bamboo.

    The glue amount could have something to do with it but my guess is that the biggest factor is that the Boardsmith board is end grain which means the wood is open on the surface.
