My wife took MY favorite chopping board, a very nice large older one,
and used it for a project of hers. Her project was to poke holes in
some project of hers with an ice pick, using the wood chopping block as
a backup. (She since went to the fabric store and bought the proper
punch, saying the chopping board did a "sloppy" job on her project.) I
now have a chopping block with about 25 1/4" deep holes in it, the size
of the tip of an ice pick. What would be the best material to fill the
holes with, then, probably sand flush. Something that wouldn't come
out, or sluff off with time. Since I only use KNIVES on it, there
should be no problem of them being punched or gouged out unless the
grandkids are given it by SWMBO for butchering lizards or similar.
These women. They can use your stuff in the most outlandish way, ruin
it, but don't you dare touch any of their stuff.
And then say, "What's the problem? Just fix it!" Or, "Wassamatta? You
have two of them, and that one your Dad gave you was getting old anyway?"
Sheesh. Think I'll use her nice white placemats next time I need to
wash Big Red, and see how she likes it.
"Oh, Honey, don't you like the way the grey tones accentuate the white?"
On our chopping board as it gets nicks and deep cuts I fill with JB Weld and
after set up for 24 hours use belt sander to even it smooth. Then treat with
MINERAL OIL. Let it soak in and them wipe off excess. This board is over 50
years old. WW
