Just wanted to share how my first cutting board ever turned out. Another modified Wood Whisperer design of course, using purpleheart and hard maple. Finished with a few coats of thinned General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish with light sanding in between. Routed out some handholds and roundovers on the top and bottom edges. Approximately 17.5” x 9.5” x 1 3/16”. Quite happy with how it turned out. Now to figure out who to give it to for Christmas. :)
