Download free from The official CBdesigner website
First of all, I’m blown away by all the kind words and feedback that I have received ever since I first released the original CBdesigner back in 2008. It makes me glad to know that I was able to provide at least some assistance to woodworkers as they pour their creativity into designing their cutting boards.
It’s been almost 7 years since v1.3 but I’m happy to announce that I finally got around to making version 2.0! It retains the same functionally with a few new bells and whistles. I spruced up the GUI so it is pleasing to the eye and more user friendly. One of the biggest changes is a Settings menu where the user can now set default settings and has the ability the make their own custom wood library (one of the most requested features by people). You can also export your cutting board to a pdf file where you can print it for use in your shop. I also added a randomize feature to help with the design process. And best of all, you don’t have to install that pesky OCX file anymore. Just unzip and run the executable! You do need Microsoft .NET framework installed but most Windows machines should have it installed already.
I also want to thank everyone who has monetarily supported my efforts to make this program. I decided to continue to keep this version 100% free in the spirit of supporting the woodworking community at large. I am appreciative of anything you want to donate.
Since this is a new version, I appreciate any questions/comments/suggestions you might have when running the program so I can incorporate them in future version when I get the chance.
Special thanks to Brad for helping me out over the years by developing the website and hosting the files.
Have fun making your cutting boards!
