I (with the help of my two daughters from time to time) have been building speakers, trays, and shelves using reclaimed barn wood for about a year. Last Christmas my wife asked if I would make some cutting boards as gifts for her sister-in-laws. I said why not and I decided to make them out of the same reclaimed barn wood. They went over so well that they all said I should sell them online. My oldest daughter, Stephanie, thought that it would be a fun experiment so here we are.
Each cutting board comes preconditioned with a combination of mineral oil and bee's wax. With proper care the board will last for another 100 years. Long enough for you to create some historic meals using historic cutting boards!
