My jig for building cutting boards….

Pretty simple, a piece of melamine with three “fences”. Everything trimmed out in some walnut that I got from a scrap pile, which keeps the melamine from chipping out on the edges. It has some pine strips on the bottom to elevate it and the fences are reinforced with aluminum angle braces.

A nice, tidy solution.

Looks as if it will serve you well.
I like the walnut edge banding.

Good timing as I need to build one of these….
For my first cutting board…. end grain at that!!!

Thanks for sharing.
