Good Looking Selection of Tawny Walnut
The wood selection I received is quite nice. The mix between light and dark is about even. Some boards are light on one side, and dark on the other. A few have a nice blend of light and dark on one side. I trimmed a small amount of waste off most boards (1/4 to 1/2 inch strips). I had enough good wood for 2 large cutting boards (12 x 16 x 3/4 thick).
The kit contains a bottle of type 2 glue, but I will use type 3 for a bit more water protection in the joints. I will save the small oil bottle that comes in the kit for the kitchen cabinet and monthly maintenance. I use 2 coats of oil, then 1 coat of a wax / oil conditioner for new boards.
Familiarity: I haven't used it yet
