My wife works at the high school and every year they have a senior citizen appreciation lunchen. And every year she informs me that she needs me to make some door prizes to give out. So I made these as a set of cutting boards that she will give. The long one is for french bread and is 6” x 24” and the small one is what was left over from the glue up. It is 6” x 8” and is good for cutting up onions on. I have another set in the clamps and she also said she wanted me to turn some of the miniture bird house ornaments that I make.

Very nice boards, I like the idea of making them job specific so to speak.

Nice work Bobby – I think that somebody should be able to make some great Po-boys on that French Bread board.

Interesting, I had not thought of a cutting board for french bread. Both are nice looking cutting boards. What woods did you use? It looks like Oak, Maple, Purpleheart, and Paduk maybe?

Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated. The wood in this one are Mahogany, Maple, Jatoba, and Oak.
This was all scrap pieces that were given to me by a friend. He’s always ribbing me about not throwing anything away. I can’t see throwing perfectly good pieces of wood away if it can make something like these cutting boards.

Great looking cutting boards. A beautiful selection.

I hope your wife didn’t let you know on the night before they were required, like most kids do on special reports due tomorrow.
