I love the burly maple? But then again they all look fantastic! Great work!

What do you use for a finish for these cutting boards??

The first one is Birdseye Maple Burl w/ a Birds eye Maple strip down the center.

The second is Walnut, Birdseye Maple & Peruvian Nogal Walnut..

And the third is Birdseye Maple and Walnut.

Thanks for the great comments!

I use Butcher Block oil on all boards, 4 -5 coats, sanding in between each coat w/ 600 grit.
It makes a nice finish and is food safe.

You sure that's a cutting board? The center one looks like a hazing paddle! :)

I really dig that burl though. Nice work.
