    No problem with that, Paul. Draw the size circle you want, and draw rings the same width as the original. I think I used 3/8" rings for that. The cutting angle remains the same regardless of the outer diameter.

    Check into Boos mystery oil. I'm not sure what's in it--may be just mineral oil, but it smells nice and I've used it for food-contact objects.

    Well, I never used wenge, so I did an online search on butcher blocks made with wenge. There are lots of them, so it's considered a good wood to use for that purpose. Hard maple should look great with it. The only caution I found regarding finishing was that wenge might be slow to dry with an oil finish. I think it might also matter if you were using face grain or end grain. On the other hand, you wouldn't want any finish that would get messed up by cutting on it, so I think it's worth a try on a scrap of wood. If you do a google search, you'll find lots of interesting glue-ups that you might want to try. Hope this helps.

    Hi Carole, Hon I have a question! Our kithchen is mostly black and white , My wife wants a new cutting board and I was thinking Wenge & Maple. Do you think it would work? do you think Butcher block finish would penetrate the Wenge? TY Bob

    The pieces of yellowheart measure 1/4" thick by 3/4" wide, by 4-1/2" long. When you glue them in place, the narrow sides are on the top and bottom, and the glue is applied on the 3/4" sides. That way, the wood stays 3/4" thick after it is all glued up. I think the picture should make it pretty clear. If you still need help, then write to me again and I'll try to explain it better. Thanks.
