I know we’re past Christmas now, but thought I would share this cutting board design with you. I used bamboo for the main board and hardwood (rosewood & walnut) for the dowels. Anyone can get creative with this. If you have a lathe, you can make your own dowels of different sizes.

I’m also thinking of a reverse design. I bought some maple dowels and will mate those with either a piece of darker walnut or mesquite as the main board. I like having the contrast between darker and lighter colored woods.

I don’t have a planer, so I used my belt sander to sand the dowels flush with the bamboo. Then used the orbital sander for final sanding.

You can checkout my YouTube video is you’d like to see how I made this.

i also used my own mineral oil / beeswax mix to finish it.

Thanks for looking!
