This is my first cutting board, which I made for my fiancee’s birthday. Wood is maple and walnut.
After some instruction from the Wood Whisperer and after buying a table saw, I thought it would be a good project to try out. I started out by laminating a piece of maple to a piece of walnut, then I ripped it down to a square cross-section. Then, I cut it into 1.25” slices and glued together a row at a time before gluing the rows together. After a little routing and a lot of sanding, I ended up with this beauty. Finished size is about 7.5” x 13” x 1.25”. Finished with three light coats of salad bowl finish cut 50% with mineral spirits.
Thanks for looking.
