With all this time off I’ve got to do some smaller projects. Got lots of scrap and spare time. I was raised with a pig board my dad had built in high school woodshop. This is my take on it, a Bear board. I made my wife a large “fancy” cutting board but it never gets used because it is just to large and heavy. The main board is a sapwood cherry. The lightning bolts are made from walnut, heartwood cherry, and purpleheart.

very unique Dennis, maybe you’ve started something for a new design competition, “The-not-your-normal-cutting board” here at LJ.

Dennis, I must admit I’m pretty sick of looking at cutting boards, but this one is one is great! I mean….... it bear-ly even looks like a cutting board.

once again Dennis creates a piece of art! Awesome.
I’m sure there is some Native story being told in the design. I really like it!!

Dennis, this is a unique design and a nice way to use those offcuts they seem to lie around the shop for eons.

Nice job.

Now Dennis can start the whole bear family, and use up more scrap wood. Then there are birds and other animals too….a whole nature scene

That’s right Bill. I’ll call it the Goldilocks collection. This cutting board is too small, this one is tooooo big….
Thanks for your comments!
