Here are two cutting boards (TWW) that are made from maple and cherry. The long one is 1 1/4” x 12” x 18” and the other is 1 1/2” x 12” x 13”. I originally made the long one as a gift but it hasn’t left our kitchen since it came in from the shop. So back to the shop I go. The cutting board seemed a little long that’s why the second one is shorter. They are finished with 3 coats of beeswax salad bowl finish, which is easily applied and we can give a small container along with it.

They really turned out great. I like the combination of the woods you used…

The short one is a gift, the other is for the house.

Nice work on the cutting boards. You will probably get many requests for more of them!

Those boards look great, man. I just glued up my first TWW board last night. I had a great time making it although I had to improvise a bit with resawing the 4/4 down to 1.5 but it works anyway. I’m sure glad that I have a planer now!

The contrast came out nice. I’ve never had alot of luck contrasting maple and cherry, but you did great.
