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).
