    Great project, marlin. All parties will love your gifts. I also like the idea of your sister's & boyfriend's buy-in on your hobby and gift to your mom.

    Good project. Make sure you use waterproof glue, such as Titebond 3 or epoxy. Somebody recently gave me some reclaimed teak and I made some cutting boards by piecing it together.

    It will be very useful in the kitchen and your mom will love it.

    Me too because I had to order the maple which cost about $45 + shipping but I bought the cherry 1"x2"x8' from home depot

    Well got the wood glued and the final thickness done with my planer. So now will cut down to the final size my mom wants which is 12"X15" and sealed and finish with food grade mineral oil.

    Just a comment - you can buy mineral oil at a pharmacy. Not very expensive, it's sold as a laxative. Obviously safe for human consumption.

    Well got the grove routed plus the edges and the edges sanded and letting it soak up the mineral oil overnight I got in the pharmacy got 3 bottles $2.19 a 16oz bottle 2 to store.

    Looking good. You did well with the groove. For what my opinion is worth, I don't think you need to soak the board in mineral oil. Just rub it on, wipe off the excess, and then put the board in the sun to let the mineral oil evaporate. That's what I do. After some use I'll rub mineral oil on it again to brighten it up.

    IMG_20190819_110902259.jpgWell got it done and it is ready for use by my mom.

    Handsome piece, Marlin. She will love it. So you might have a tough time getting her to use it for intended purpose.
    Be prepared to see it hanging on her wall ...with your baby pics taped on !!
