This winter, I realized I had too many art projects. After giving it some thought, I decided to give each medium its own day. I’ll make videos on at least one of those days.
In addition to sharing a first consonant with Wednesday, woodburning is great fit for the middle of the week. I hope to post videos each time I create something new. It took me until Thursday to post the Wednesday video, and of course, Friday I will continue the self-portrait I’m working on.
For my first Woodburning Wednesday, I thought I would create a morel mushroom cutting board. After investing in a bottle of cutting board oil, I was ready to get started.
The cutting board oil performed well, was completely scent-free as advertised and made the surface of the wood smooth. I could see this oil as a solution for sealing coasters and other kitchen related items.
As an amateur mushroom hunter, morels are often what I’m looking for. Future cutting boards will feature other food favorites.
I decided to woodburn just a portion of the board so it could be functional for cutting things on. Maple is such a beautiful wood, perfect for cutting boards. I wanted the natural wood to take center stage.
I also accept custom orders, direct or on Etsy. I can create just about any design, including personalization. Thinking of the perfect wedding or housewarming gift? Cutting boards are perfect! Message me with questions and requests.
