These are Five cutting boards I made for the ladies in my family for Christmas. They are from an plan from Woodturner Pro, with some changes. They are made from Jatoba, Bloodwood and Maple finished with Mineral Oil.

Very nice work, making five to start was wise, I missed one last year and had to go back and make one more.

I started with One, to work out the kinks, then built Five more, I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of one that is finshed. I will have to get one and post it, they really look good once they are oiled.

I have a hard enough time with square ones. Very nice design & I bet they looks even better with oil.

Not going to lie, I envy your clamp collection. The cutting boards are nice too.

Really attractive and vibrant pattern.

Was this the basic pattern on the plan and you modified for sizing, or how did you modify the plans?

Would love to see pictures of them oiled! If you can, please add a pic. of the completed one.

Very sharp looking boards, and your setup is great.
