I decided to use this board as my entry to the Yin Yang contest, I think the dark and light woods really offset each other on this cutting board.

This cutting board was to be finished by X-Mas but I got side tracked. It’s made from Black Walnut and Hard Maple on the weave side. Hard Maple and Brazilian Mahogany from some hard wood floor left overs.
These are a joy to make and the smile that comes from the face of the person recieving it is worth the time to make them.
I hope she likes it. :)
Thanks for viewing

Well executed and I like the choice of timber… almost monochromatic.

Jim, these are some nice looking cutters. I especially like the look of the weave pattern. There is no doubt in my mind that either of these boards will be a hit.
