I designed this batch of cutting boards after a leaded glass window in the craftsman style. The boards are end grain hard maple, black walnut and bloodwood. Lot of rip cuts, glue ups, planing and sanding! Finished with a mineral oil and beeswax blend.

The last few pics are of The Silver Lake mill shop in Dayton Va., They sell work of local artisans and have agreed to sell my boards. I thought I would post a couple pictures of the cutting boards on display.

Best wishes on your sales ! What are the dimensions of these boards ?

That board has the look of stained glass, very nice. What was the glue up process for the board?

There must be something about the combination of the nameTim, Arts and Crafts/stained glass and cutting boards that caused this.
