I owed several people a favor, so I made these as gifts to give them. Cutting boards are made from walnut, cherry and maple. Approx. 10×14. The bread board in the second picture is 20 inches long and is made from walnut, cherry, and padauk. The small cheese boards in the third picture are mesquite. Nothing special about any of these, but I thought I would post them since I have been pretty quiet lately.

I wish I had the talent to make “nothing special ” boards !!! They’re all wonderful designs and color combos : )

I thought I better warn you about working in the shop under the influence, lol. Beautiful work. I’m sure the recipients will love them.

Rowdy, please excuse my ignorance but are these bandsawn? If not, how do you do it? I’d love to give it a try.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.

Martyn, the cheese boards and the “handle” on the bread board were cut with a band saw.

The cutting boards were made following the Porosky/Degoose procedure. If you look at Scott Porosky’s blog:
poroskywood/blog/10833 you will find explicit directions. All table saw work the way I did it. Let me know if you cannot locate Scott’s blog.

By the way everything was finished with mineral oil.

Just by way of correction, in my response to Martyn I intended to say “All table saw AND BANDSAW work…...Sometimes I get in too big a hurry, since I had rather work in the shop than at the keyboard.
