I was amazed at the cutting board that Marc Spagnuolo did on his website… so I had to do one myself.. I like the way it turned out and the friends that I gave it to seemed to really appreciate it. The test will be if they are using it when we visit their home next weekend.

The wood is purpleheart and hard maple.. It is a bit hard to see the purpleheart because the photo was taken with my camera phone. I gave the project away before I could take a good picture of it. I guess I will have to make another one.
Thanks

I like the pattern a lot.

Do you have a jointer or planer? If not, how tight are the joints?

nice job. These boards are great. ive made a bunch for people and no one uses them (except me). they all have them on display.

MARKRULES, you dont need a jointer to make one. A planer helps alot.

I was going to say that I would not be surprised it you friends were not using it. Most people treat these custom boards and artwork.

I liked that design so much that I am building one myself. I hope mine turns out that good. I plan putting it in an auction for my daughters school. What are some options for finish?

Chris
I used General’s salad bowl finish which is basically a wipe on varnish. I did not dilute it with mineral spirits but used it right out of the can. I gave it three coats and then sanded the last coat with 0000 steel wool.

Ah I see that you have a jointer and a planer… When I started my Spaguolo cutting board i had yet to buy those tools and you can see the problems that it caused me. I’ll have to try another one now that I have added toys to my shop/garage. (I really wish I could just call it a shop.)

I made for my wife using the same Wood Whisperer video. Don’t hold your breath. My wife won’t cut any thing on hers either. Says it’s too pretty. I guess I will make her an UGLY one so she will cut on it.

I find it to be true of most of my customers buying a piece of “counter top furniture” and never cutting on them . I always tell them to just pick the side that they like the best and then do their cutting on the other side….this is an awesome board . Where can I find this video that everyone is talking about to make one of these ? Thank you : )
