Yes, I joined the parade of Christmas Gifts and made a few cutting boards of different designs. I will have to say I learned a great deal about glue-ups, design, and mating of different wood species. It was great to see how they came out! Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year filled with the aroma of sawdust!

Wow, a bunch. Cutting board may look simple, just a square piece of wood. but allot of work goes into just one of these. Laminating takes time and planning, then the finishing and sanding of the end grain, hard as nails. Everyone will really appreciate all the work you put into these, very well done.

Wow, great looking boards! That’s a lot of glue-ups, planing, and sanding, oh my! ...and especially time. Excellent work! How do your long grain boards hold up compared to the end grain ones (if you know or have gotten feedback from recipients).

What finish did you use?

Merry Christmas to you and our fellow sawdust engineers as well as happy Chanukah and happy New Year!
