Quickie Cutting Board

I needed some shop time today to relax and clear my head, so I rummaged around and found a scrap of Cherry.  Nice color, but not enough to do much with.  So I made a cutting board with bread board ends and through-mortises.  The mortises aren’t perfect, but they are snug and overall pretty nice..  I planed it all nice and smooth, broke the edges with a block plane and rubbed in a coat of (food safe) Tried & True Oil/Wax finish.  I’ll give it another coat tomorrow while I clean up the mess in the shop and leave it to dry for a week.  It looks nice and didn’t take long to do.
