this is the latest cutting board I have made, it is Maple, Walnut, Cherry, and Bloodwood, 20”X 12”X 3/4” I still can’t imagine using something like this to actually cut on.
Larry and many others are creating works of art that will last much longer than a painting or photo, so I am still trying to learn, and maybe one day I can put mine next to theirs.
thanks for looking.

This is beautiful!!! I love the design and the wood choices compliment each other nicely.
Keep in mind… the more you use it, the nicer it gets!

It’s beautiful! I love the design.

I use my boards for cutting and I encourage others to also use the ones I make; it just feels good to use something that beautiful. I cut on one side and leave the other side for display.

Great board! Your right Larry and few others are masters, but the fact that they share and help us is a great thing! Very well done.

This is a credit to you… well done..
I can see so many newish designs being posted here…
I can’t keep up with all the talented folks …
Definitely not your standard cutter..This is the third step…

Great job! The color contrast really works well.
You may consider yourself still a “student” but with work like that you could teach some of us a whole lot. .
