I made this cutting board to extend the counter space over the sink. The Black Locust is heavy, hard, anti-fungal and rot resistant, which is why I have been using it in places that there will be lots of exposure to water.
I gouged a bevel into the bottom of the board so it slides snugly into the stainless sink. After running it through the planer it shines like a golden, exotic hardwood. It is one of my favorite local materials, and this piece in particular is a large slab for a locust tree.
