Here’s a quick post for this hot summer day. Our little heat wave has put me in mind of Jon’s newest acquired craft: wood burning. One Vermont-made maple cutting board plus one soldering iron plus one hard working husband equals one lovely, customized wedding gift.
Jon traced the monogram design onto the board with pencil and then carefully and with an artist’s steady hand burned it into the wood surface. Once complete, I gave the board a thorough rub down with mineral oil. This came out so well, I think we’ll need to invest in an actual wood burning tool. I see a huge gift potential here. I hope our friends and family like cutting boards!
