I wanted to make a larger cutting board for the center island of our kitchen. To soften the appearance I arched all four sides using a router and trammel jig. I held the board in place with double sided tape and traced the outline onto a piece of plywood base. I used cutting board designer software program to achieve the proportions. The program was great to work with, saving both time and materials! Wood used were Maple, Cherry and Walnut finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. Thanks for looking!

The softer sides really do give it a great look. This looks great.

Good looking board. No reason to make them square.

Very nice, like the colors and the added dimensional with the curved edges.
