Well I am officially running out of ideas for kitchen theme Christmas presents. I think I have next year covered but from then on it’s anyone’s guess.

Thought I would combine a couple of ideas I liberated from submissions here (cutting board, cheese board and swirl handle)

Boards are walnut and maple. The granite tile, knife blade and glass cover are from the Woodturners catalog. Boards finished with pure mineral oil. Knife handle with several layers of gloss poly.

Thanks, everyone, for the ideas!

Those are very nice. I like the idea of putting a cheese dome on one side. I might have to use that idea. Walnut and maple is one of my very favorite combinations. Thanks for sharing.
