    That's really cool, WS! She ought to start making them over the winter, and selling them on Craigslist. Betcha she could make some play money off of those.

    Use teak oil, just a quick rub down with a rag. They will soak it up and bring out the natural colors of the wood. Mineral oil works too, I use that on my cutting boards :)

    Neat !!

    I second the oil, use it on cutting boards here, too.

    I sense a theme coming on your walls :)
