A while back I was at the mill and picked up this #1 grade walnut cheap with the intent of turning it into a cutting board. As time went by I lost interest in that project and moved on to other things. A week ago my sister-in-law hinted she wanted a cutting board for Christmas, so I knew exactly what to do. I dug out the wood and started to cut out all the imperfections. I ended up with this. I think she will like it. Finished with mineral oil.

Love how you used the sapwood to make it more than just a functional piece.

Sometimes the inclusion of sapwood really pays off, as it has here.

Great job aligning it into this most interesting pattern.

OK, so that’s one gift down… how many more to go? ;)
