Works in Wood
by Jerry Quebe
Jerry Quebe When he's not out in the garden, Jerry is most likely to be found in his shop, making frames for Liz's paintings and cutting and serving boards.  The boards are available through VIVA Gallery in Viroqua, WIsconsin.  Each board is unique, a product of the ttpe of wood, pattern of the grain, and vision of the woodworker.


Cutting/Serving boards can be purchased through VIVA Gallery.

Jerry's cutting and serving boards are made of local woods, including ash, curly oak, curly maple, birdseye maple, black locust, walnut and cherry.  Using the end grain and/or face grains with unique patterning, he configures the woods  to make designs that are unusual, interesting and beautiful.

Eschewing the usual finishing treaments for cutting boards, he has chosen a mixture of tung oil and citrus spirits.  The choice is labor-intensive--a full six weeks of drying and rubbing--but it yields a hard-wearing, food-safe surface.

The cutting boards can be cleaned with soap and water, wiped, and are best left to dry in a vertical position to prevent warping.
