OK….there are a bunch of cutting boards on LJ’s but I’d be willing to bet that this is the first to be made out of an old crib!
The maple was “repurposed” from a neighbor’s old crib that I got my hands on. After breaking it down, I used the vertical slats – lots of skinny ones – for most of the board. I added some scrap cherry in the middle and ends to lend a little color to the board.
This is my first endgrain cutting board – guess I’m a legit LJ’er now. I’m pretty happy with the results and I have enough “crib” wood left to try another one. Many thanks to the Wood Whisperer videos and all of the advice posted by you LJ’ers on how to produce these.
