Forgot to mention that I made a cutting board from scrap wood this weekend.

I still had a piece of pretty enough and sufficiently heavy kitchen countertop wood lying around that was left over from building my shop workbench. I didn’t really know what to do with it, so last weekend I converted it into a new cutting board.

It’s not that much of an innovation, nor was it overly much work. A little cutting, going over the thing with the router (where a mishap had to occur, of course 🙂 ) and a lot of the inevitable sanding. Then I treated it with my favourite Lumberjack™ linseed oil a few times for protection and good looks.

It came out nice enough, I think and I think it’ll be useful.

Ah, dimensions: It’s simple, bonded beechwood 45 x 35 x 3 cm (~ 17.7 x 13.7 x 1.2 in.), straight from the hardware store.
