A couple friends recently got married. Their wedding registry showed a simple cutting board. I knew I could do better. Following Steve’s blog ( I was able to build what you see here.

Maple, walnut, and cherry. Mineral oil finish. My favorite aspect are the edge views. Looks like the color is flowing off the face over edge. I saw the Mrs today and she told me the Mr refuses to use it. Instead he’s displaying on the coffee table as a decorative piece.

You’ve done an outstanding job on your boards Pat, I wouldn’t cut on them either. That’s a wedding gift that will last a lifetime.

How about a blog on how you did these?

Nice job Pat. I know Steve has inspired me with many boards as well.
