Maple and Cherry cutoffs that I picked up for almost free. They had laying around since last winter when I intended to make it…just uncovered them in a pile of other stuff last week. I think more boards will be on the way soon…

Well you’ve made the first step towards a long cutting board journey. Your on your way to see the Chairman of the Board! Follow the wooden path. Through the “End Grain” fields, past the elusive “Woven” walls over the “Double Curve” river through the “Spiral” rapids. Then at the top of “Tumbling Block” Mountain there awaits the Chairman of the Board. Bring him a six pack of XXXX and he will bring you back home in his magical inspirational chair.

Thanks guys…I think I do see end grain in my future, but the more complex ones are out of my league with the current TS I have. The Chairman of the Board shouldn’t keep a light on for me just yet…..
