    Not all of our wood is treated like this piece was.
    I was processing it under the direction of a Luthier who makes high end acoustic guitars.
    This was some of the wood that will be resawn thin and bookmatched for guitar backs.

    Eamon,
    I misunderstood your comments. My apologies.

    Here is how it looks after the first coat of it's finish (beeswax and orange oil)
    There will be several more coats over the next couple days.
    Looks like I don't get to keep this one.
    My Boss keeps saying how much he likes it.
    I'm kind of slow but I can take a hint.

    Wait and see, but have to say, a beautiful piece. I vote for a trivet or maybe a cheese board.

    Beautiful piece! Almost a shame not to use it as a everyday cuttingboard.
    Question, the orange oil, what does it contrubute?

    The orange oil is a food safe oil and it smells good.
    It is mixed with the beeswax and helps it to penetrate into the wood.
    Gives a nice finish and helps to repel water and protect the wood.
    Basically an alternative to mineral oil.
