Well as the title says these are wedding gifts for my wife’s best friend and the other is for my cousin. I’m sure it will be like all the others boards that look like this I have given, and will never be used. These have all been done by hand minus cutting the curves. I did that on the bandsaw that was my wife’s grandfathers. Anyways that’s it thanks for looking and commenting if you do.

Awesome job. Yes, we only make them to be admired.

That’s the destiny of such beautiful boards – they are to beuatiful to use. But, don’t be discouraged by that fact. Keep on making them.

Ahh, the conflict of beauty and pragmatism, I know it too well. I’ve purchased my wife 1 large beautiful cutting board and 2 ornate journals. She refuses to write in the journals, and won’t let me use the cutting board :(

Oh, hey, maybe that’s a good excuse for why all my stuff turns out funky? “I want it to be used!”

Still, even my lust for practicality couldn’t prompt me to utilize these. Nicely done.

I love these beautiful patterns. They will be wonderful eye catchers.
