My twist (yes i know bad pun) on the drunken board, went with a single wood, mainly working out how to make them, now on with the improved versions for x-mas

i really like these “drunken” cutting boards. If you weren’t a woodworker, and didnt know the technique for doing it, you’d be like “how the hell did they do this???” Very cool design. I like the contrasting colors of woods! Thanks for sharing

Looks like a Tequila hang over to me, not that I have had one 8~0. Very cool.

Good job Mr Normal.
I like this. More than the multi colored ones, I think.
Kind of classic looking.

Jim: this is a variation on a drunken board, pretty good blog write up here on the process:
as I am only using one color no need to stack. I do soak the strip wood overnight then, dry clamp it up again overnight to get the proper bends, then glue

Have your say...
