Busy making Christmas gifts. Found this guy on YouTube making these…link below. Not too complicated once you figure out there are only two patterns involved. A test in precision planing and glue ups.

Beautiful job, Ray. Intense amount of work, at least to me. I looked at the whole video. His shop is like a cutting board maker’s paradise. It’s obvious he makes a lot of them. I wondered at the accuracy of his “drawn” out benchtop.

I also got a kick of two things – he stops his cut mid-cut on his table saw almost every time to pick up his push stick. And I noticed he puts on a glove on the tightening hand when he tightens up bar clamps. Interesting.

Took a look at his website, told Google to translate it. At today’s going rate, a higher end board by him, say 12000 rubles translates to $169 American. I would think in the right market in a major metro area in this country, a board like you’ve created here Ray, would go for well over $200-225. There are restaurant supply houses around me, (two that I can think of), that regularly sell end grain boards about 2” thick for over $200.

But some of his cheaper ones he only gets about $65-70 American.

I’m beginning to gain way more respect for people who can do this type of work, since last month when my gallery asked me to make what turned out to be six simple boards, (by the standards above), and sold them very fast. Very interesting and they do make great Christmas presents.

Love these boards. MTMWood is one of the few youtube channels I subscribe to. That guy is great the way he shares information. Around here boards above the $100 mark are a difficult sell. Last year I had three of them one staggered stair and two Sinister priced at $125 each. All I got were ooohs and aaahs show after show but then someone came and purchased all three.
