I had an order for one board, but to make it, I had to buy the 8/4 lumber in rough form. Turns out, I had enough material to make four boards. To do that, I created two different patterns. The end result was jsut some scrap left over so that was good.

All four are spoken for! :-)

The boards are ready for pickup…and one will be shipped.

I made them from hard maple and walnut. Ouch! Walnut is expensive! $10.65 bd ft around these parts.

I used mineral oil as a finish.

Just simple woodworking techniques…flatten, square the edges, rip and glue. Cut them in half. and route the grooves.

“Two words: End grain.”

Sorry, I don’t do end grain, but thanks anyway.

Stellar job on the cutting boards, Mike…I like to use the same combo of woods on some my boards, as well…
