This is a cutting board made from some scrap butcher block counter tops. 1 1/2” thick, laminated birch. The design for the gravy moat was actually something I saw on the Boos website and liked so I changed it a little and tried it out. The blank was 20” x 31”. I drew up the design in AutoCAD for the CNC router tool paths and had a friend of mine at the cabinet shop I used to work at run it for me. The moats are 3/4” wide and 1/2” deep. It took a lot of sanding…hand and power to get everything this nice, plus a few coats of my special formula of beeswax and mineral oil! It also has rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from sliding around the counter. I made this for my boss…he is an avid hunter so I told him now he can carve up an entire buffalo on one board! I also did two smaller ones (18”x25”) from the same materials…with a moat around the outside edge…no tree.
