I was encouraged by a friend to build this. He said it’s easy. Anyone can do it. I made this and it wasn’t too hard. Not ready to make ones like his. This is made from walnut, white oak and hard maple scraps from the bin. It is coated with mineral oil and is about 7” x 8”. It’s just the right size for cutting up an apple. Thanks for looking.

Very cool, Bill. I’m looking forward to seeing more of them from you.

Great looking board.
You have done well, Young Skywalker!!!
Now use the farce to create a rival to JL7’s evil, masterful creations….

A little sawdust & glue will hide them…. Got Dust???

Looks excellent from here. Its probably big enough for filleting those little trout.

Well done, Bill! I’m working on one now too. Mine should be ready in about . . . a few months.

Thanks friends.
Randy, these are not the cutting boards you are looking for.
Jack, maybe I’ll get better at this and use all my scraps for cutting board gifts.
Andy, if I ate any trout.
Don, mine took about a week with only working on it about 5 minutes at a time. Did you watch Jeff’s video?

It’s not strict Andy. I keep lots when we go to Canada. I like to eat walleye and northern pike , but not bass or trout.

I would keep them if I would ever catch them. They’re a little difficult to catch on artificial bait usually unless you’re in the right place at the right time, which has only happened once to me.

My brother is the crappie king and only uses jigs. Shallow in the spring and deep under the heated docks in the fall. He will bring use a big sack full of filets when he’s feeling charitable. He spends as much time on a crappie fishing website as I do on LJ!

That looks awesome! I have been wanting to make one myself, just haven’t gotten around to it yet. =)
