What do you do when you have amassed various small pieces of beautiful exotic hardwoods too small for any furniture project? You build a one of a kind seriously intricate end grain cutting board.
After a full year of building numerous large projects I had again amassed a treasure trove of beautifuly figured exotic hardwoods. I don’t normally build cutting boards but when my treasure box begins to overflow I like to create what I call global cutting boards. As you can see from the pictures, the board is constructed of hundreds of pieces of multiple species of hardwoods. I call this a global cutting board because different species of wood used in its construction come from 3 different continents. Woods used include:
Figured Black Walnut
The board measures approximately 20” long x 13.5” wide x 1 3/4“ thick and features side lifting grooves to allow for easy moment around the kitchen.
