I finished these 2 sets of cutting boards for both of my daughters. As luck would have it they are both fighting over the same set. To solve the fight I told them whoever moves out first gets the first choice.

One set was mostly Walnut with Oak strips, the other set was mostly Oak with Walnut strips.

The design of these cutting boards came from WoodSmith Magazine.

Love the sets. I think I’m leaning towards the lighter set. I’m usually drawn to the darker walnut, but in this case the dark accent sets it off much better than the darker heavy area. They’re going to be lucky whoever gets either one of them.

Thanks for sharing

The issue was over 5 years ago. However I think it can be found in their weekend woodworking project book on sales for $10. Any time I have struggled to find a project Woodsmith is very helpful, just call them they can point you right to the exact issue.

Well, now I know what I’m doing with the cutoff bin this year for Christmas. Thank goodness I bought that drum sander…

I am not sure what issue of Woodsmith the plans are from, but there is a link to the PDF plans from Woodsmith’s website:

I like these boards a lot. Walnut and oak look good together. Nice design and well executed. I would like to make some for gifts. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow from you…
