DIY Wood Slice Cutting Board
Make an easy DIY Wood Slice Cutting Board. You simply need an old tree stump, sand paper, some mineral oil and a way (or someone handy) to cut the tree stump into slabs.
Once you have your tree stump cut into slabs, you’ll want to be sure to allow the slab to completely dry or cure first.
Once the wood is cured, you’ll want to sand the slabs. First, sand with coarse (50-grit) sandpaper, then with a finer (120-grit) sandpaper. Wipe off dust with a cloth.
Use a clean cloth to rub mineral oil into the wood slab. Janna says you can wait 20 minutes and then apply another coat. I’ve always applied the first coat, waited 24-hours and then applied my second coat. You may need to apply three or four coats to properly season the wood. But, trust me, you don’t want to skimp on this important step. Once you have applied your final coat of mineral oil, wipe off any excess and buff to a nice shine.
