Cutting boards

These cutting boards were made for the Christmas of 2005. There were I believe 19 of them made and though they look identical they are not. Why are they not identical you ask?
Because my miter gauge was off a tinsey bit and so sizing had to change to fit the pieces together.
Anyway, they are all made of a mix of maple, walnut and mahogeny and finished with mineral oil.

Thank you. Even though I had trouble with them I still enjoyed making them. These are the only cutting boards I have made. Someday I hope to make the end grain ones. They really look good.

A cutting board is an essential item, and I can’t seem to ever have enough of them with the way I cook. Great gifts, great job!

The pattern was the same for all 19 boards. The only change was in the sizing of the pieces.
I used maple, walnut and mahogeny.

Nice work Lori. These cutting boards look great. Hey, Christmas is a few months away, so you can make those end grain boards you wanted to try.

Thanks Bill. Those end grain boards will have to wait. I started making the scroll sawn baskets for this year.
At the rate I work, I will be lucky to finish in time, even with my hubby helping with the finishing.
