Charles, this looks really good. This is a nice design as well. I really like the hand hold that you put in this board.

Charles – I like the wood combinations. Just some constructive feedback. When cutting out a handle like that, I like to put down some painter’s tape and draw my lines on the tape. I then cut along the lines on the tape. The tape helps prevent chipout. It is not always perfect, but it does minimize the issue. I mention it as I’ve run into the same problem. Taping was a cheap fix with fairly good results. Great job on the cutting board. Tim
