I see a lot of cutting/cheese boards on LJ so I thought I’d put a few of mine out there. Nothing new. I’ve seen them all some place before.

-- What to make next. Hmmm.

Great selection ! Makes me want to borrow a couple of the designs : ) Well done.

Beautiful work. What is the very dark/very light combination of woods (center bottom)?

Thanks guys. The bottom center is walnut/maple combination with a very small liner of purple heart wood separating them.

they all look great. Good job. How much time do you think you have involved?

Thanks everyone. Jamie, “How much time” is a good question. Since I’m retired, only do woodworking in the winter, and am always looking for something to do, it’s hard for me to quantify time. I usually do a few at a time. I would guess about a day a piece. The tumbling block piece(lower right) was the hardest and took maybe 2 days. Most time consuming is waiting for glue to dry. But while that’s going on, I’m working on another piece. Herringbone (lower middle and lower left) are the easiest and most of the time consumed is in glue ups. Top right wave pattern was tricky and hard to keep aligned. Hope that helps.
