This is a cutting board that my son made to sell at a craft show. Everyone said it was too nice to cut on, so it didn’t sell. We are planning to turn it into a serving tray—or—put some big scratches on it so it isn’t so nice- maybe stick a knife in it point first. Any suggestions?? It is maple with a Bubinga center and Padauk accent strips. About 18” by 12” by 3/4”.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Very nice ….Common issue with nice boards that I had to overcome by routing a juice groove in the lesser side of the board and telling people that this is the side you cut on and the Good side is the one they display when not cutting on the board . Hope this helps although with only one picture , I can’t see if you put feet on it or not.
