This was originally a HUGE board that my granddaughter designed. It was 13” wide by 18” long by 1 1/2” thick. It didn’t work out well because it was hard to glue up and ended up warping. So we remachined it and ended up with a pig. haha go figure right?!
It’s made of maple, black ash and walnut, and weighs just about a ton… or maybe more? jk lol

That turned out nice. I made a pig cutting board while in High school, which was sometime ago, of straight grained maple. It is still around today…

Nice “mid process re-design”. Great shape for a cutting board. Like the stair step glue up pattern.

Keep it up.

Very neat idea.
I’ll have to do one like this, and maybe a chicken too.
