My first cutting board attempt. I love the contrasting colors. This was made primarily with a miter saw as I am just now collecting my shop toys. To make the pattern I simply glued two 3” contrasting boards and cut them at 30 degrees. Each piece is about 1/2”. I had a little trouble with the smaller diameter in the miter saw so I will probably try 3/4” next time.

Someone told me to always keep your firsts…after I gave this away. But I am pretty sure my sister-in-law liked this gift more than anything I could have bought her.
