Here is my latest project. This is a custom order from one of our earliest supporters. Made from walnut, this board measures 20×24. It is about 1 3/4 inches thick.

The handle was the most difficult part. Because the board is so thick, there was no easy way to really cut it out. So I opted for the CNC machine to cut out one side of it, flip it, and then cut through. Of course I measured really well, but the two sides still didn’t line up exactly right, but was close. With some rasp and file work, I cleaned up the inside cut and then used a 3/4” roundover bit to trim out the edges.

This is for a restaurant in Houston called El Burro and the Bull. They are located in The Conservatory in downtown Houston. My absolute favorite meal that they serve is homemade macaroni and cheese topped with brisket and some pico. Paired with a Mexican Orange Soda and you’ve got a meal! It is so good I dreamed about it the first time I had it!

If you find yourself in Houston, give them a shot before a baseball game.

Looks good. Flipping work on a cnc mill or router is always tricky.

Great looking cutting board.
