Here is a nice order I recently finished and shipped out. There are eight boards total, all of them are mahogany and maple with custom engraving for a special event. Each of these boards is for guests of honor chefs at a culinary symposium to be held soon. One of these boards is for a celebrity figure that I have to leave unnamed as of right now. These are all surprise gifts…. 6 of them are 18 X 24 , the one for the celebrity is 24 X 30 and the small countertop is 32 X 51 and is for the chef who ordered them. He is going to use this on his cooking show that he films from home…

Wow… I thought a 12”x16” was tough enough. Did you glue the big board up all at once? What kind of glue? How many BF are in the big board?

That is crazy! Along the lines of what Ian said…I did a 14” x 14” and I thought that was tough! Amazing cutting boards. Now once you find out what TV show these might end up on you have to tell us. Great job on these.

Great boards. I visited your web site and I am very impressed with your work. I also love the way your site works. What glue do you use for the boards?

How many pieces are there in the large board? How long did it take to do the large one? I’m impressed!!! I’m excited about putting a new drawer bottom in a drawer.

with a board that big you can cut veggies for the world’s largest soup or something.
