Simple Cutting Board

This is yet another product of my Wood Manufacturing/Cabinetmaking course at Holland College. Our teacher was out of the shop on Friday and rather than do nothing we decided to make cutting boards out of some scrap we had laying around the shop.

maybe the teacher is slowly moving on ,
so you can do these kind of things ?

Sweet board…Walnut , Maple and perhaps Padauk or Bloodwood ? What finish did you put on it ?

The Symmetry is outstanding as is the timber selection..looks like you have good scrap …perhaps we should say timber not used as yet.

In my shop I don’t call wood like that scrap; I call it precious!

Nice job!
Let me know if you need a ride to the Mocton wood show next week. I’ll be going on Saturday with my son-in-law.

Guy, the only reason I call it scrap is because I didn’t pay for the full length, I guess the proper term for these are off cuts, they are donated to the school shop from local woodworking companies. Thanks for the offer to give me a ride to the show but we already have it planned, a few of us from school are going to go togther.

Very nice.

I made a series of board with these same woods but missed out on that layout. Very striking.

Good job.
