I know there have been a lot of cuttingboards posted, but I enjoy seeing
the different patterns and styles posted, and variations of earlier boards.
I made a few for next Christmas gifts for family. I had been working on
kitchen cabinets, but had to stop temporarily because children moved back
home, and took my assembled cabinet carcass storage spots over (their old bedrooms).

The woods used are Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Jatoba, and Sassafras. I used up scraps
in making some of the boards. Some end grain boards, some long grain.

Nice! But I think I’d have a hard time using my Henckels on brick!

Very cool looking bunch of (what do you call a bunch of cutting boards)?. A beavy, a cutting, a knifing, a differing, a slicing, a lot of cutting boards.? Whatever. They all look cool.

You can never have enough cutting boards. And…they are the most relaxing project to make. Yours are outstanding!
