A Cutting Board That Isn't

I had a bunch of scrap walnut strips that had been accumulating. In an attempt t clean up the shop, I made my first cutting board with them. I was going to router out the juice groove and make hand holds, but before I could get there it was confiscated as part of the table centerpiece. At that point, I sanded to 220, rounded over the edges and applied some walnut oil to add some extra contrast.

Welcome to the trials and tribulations of cutting board making. Eventually you’ll have made enough where the confiscations cease and the questions arise as to why are you making another cutting board? The answer I always have, is…..Because I can…..and we have relatives.

ArtMann,
Is your comment a grammar correction? If so, I believe “to router” can be used as a verb which is what I intended, though I ain’t so good at English.

I enjoyed making this one, so I am sure I will make more now that I have the hang of it and pass them on, starting with my mom and mother in law.

That’s a great looking cutting board. It sure makes a great looking center piece as well.
