More cutting boards….... I know these are not much different than the other boards that have been posted but here they are. A kitchen store in Austin purchased 5 of the 6 boards in this batch. I probably could have sold them for a little more, but I am hoping they will order some smaller ones. I don’t really want to be in the business of making boards, but it is easier to make at least 3 boards than it is to make one. (The 6th one was for me) They are made out of Maple, Walnut and Purpleheart. They measure 12 3/4” x 19 3/4” x 1 7/8” and weigh 11 pounds.

Those are pretty neat…. just so you know, if I’m up all night trying to figure out your glue up sequence, I’m gonna blame you! ;-)

Good job. These boards are very time consuming to make but the pay off in the end is worth it. These are also very large and I can see it was challenging to keep the runs from slipping during glue up. I’ve said if I were to attempt these again I would shoot a pin nail in the center of each one as I glued them to help keep them from slipping after clamping.

Nice design. And I think you are right… it would be easier to make them in larger batches rather than one at a time.
