Here is a matching bread board and bow knife I’ve made as a thank you to my Aunt. It’s made from zebra wood and some lightly figured maple. Relatively simple, but I like how they both turned out and am excited to offer them to my Aunt as she always gets excited when I make something new for her! My wife and I just welcomed our first son a week ago and she helped us so much in preparation for his arrival. We’re really blessed to have the family we do and I just know she’ll love this set. Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone. The blade is from KenCraft and the finish is just a few coats of wiped on butcher block oil. Simple enough!

Wow.. that’s really beautiful. Great job with the grain matching!
And the bread cutter is perfect.

Everyday on here there is that one project that when you see it, it makes so much sense! Not only beautiful, but practical. First off, the wood is awesome! Hard to go wrong with Zebra. breaking it up with the maple makes it really pop and draws your attention to the book matching even more in my opinon. The maple in the handle really brings it all together. Soft roundovers really help as well. Great work, she will love it. Ill be looking for the balde today thanks!!!!! Congrats on the new addition to the family!

a big congratulations on your first son! it’s a day you won’t forget, trust me i’ve been there twice. that matches perfectly and your aunt is lucky to have it. I could see someone paying a hefty bill for such good craftsmanship.
