our old store bought cutting board was looking kind of bad, so my wife asked me to make her a new one.
the materials I used are wallnut and swedish maple salvaged from an old table. finished with wallnut oil.

Dusty, before I found this old table made of swedish maple I had never heard of it myself, I can tell you that its the hardest wood that ive ever worked with.

That is a nice looking board. I really like the contrast between the maple and the walnut and your design and proportions looks good as well.

Good job.

HI Bryan;

That looks great.

I half expected to read that now you have to build a kitchen table, to replace the one you cut up to get this wood. lol

Nice job.
