My son-in-law in the military has been posted to Pakistan. My daughter and grandsons are too far away for me to help them with the “man-of-the-house” chores, but a retired neighbor couple has stepped up and the husband responded to an overflowing toilet in the wee hours of the night, in addition to mowing the lawn.

I appreciated their hep so much I made some end-grain cutting boards as a token of thanks. I hope they enjoy them as much as I did making them.

Good neighbors are hard to find. That was real nice of them to help out your daughter. Nothing says thanks like hand crafted gifts. Hope your grandson comes home safely.

God bless your son-in-law and he remain safe while defending this great Nation. ( I served in the Navy on the USS Enterprise for 5 yrs, what seems a lifetime ago.) I have 4 of these boardes in finishing stage, 2 like yours and 2 prurpleheart and maple as well. I really love the side fingerholes I may have to use this for the next set. What type of bit and jig setup did you use?
Nice Job!

There is nothing better than a gift that you can use daily. Very good job.
