This is my first cutting board and it turned out really nice. The wife wanted a heavier one when rolling out her pizza dough as she won’t do it on the counter and the old one would move around making it hard to roll the dough. I got the design from wood magazine (http://community.woodmagazine.com/t5/Info-Sharing/How-to-build-an-end-grain-cutting-board-lots-of-pix/td-p/46459).
It is made from Maple and Walnut. Has small grooves in the ends for handles. I put anti-slip feet on the bottom and they work really good. Size is 13” x 18” x 1 3/8”.

Sanded it in my homemade drum sander to 220 gr and used my homemade slot mortiser to rout the handles using a 3/4 box cove bit. Finished it with bees wax salad bowl finish from leevalley (http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=20087&cat=1,190,42950).

The last picture is the old cutting board from Leevalley (http://www.leevalley.com/en/garden/page.aspx?p=58264&cat=2,40733,40734).

That is really nice looking and she ought to love it.

-- Bill M. I love my job as a firefighter, but nothing gives me the satisfaction of running my hand over a project that I have built and just finished sanding.

Thanks for all the great comments. You are right Jeff, I have already started making more from the leftover wood although they are much smaller and lighter.
