I liked my last cutting board so much I decided to make it a wall piece so that it’s on display while not in use. Just a quick little rack I made out of walnut scrap and finished with 3 coats of wipe-on poly.

Awesomely cool. Can you share the pattern cuts for the board itself?

Curious as to why you used poly as opposed to mineral oil, walnut oil, or other penetrating oils. Won’t any cuts you make on the board degrade the poly?

I like your board WoodenSoldier.

It looks like your previous but rearranged. I gives a great 3D perspective.

Grest job!

Beautiful cutting board and a great way to display it. It is so nice, I would not cut on it!!!!!!!

It is a real eye catcher!

Thanks for sharing. I have to make one of them some day! Like Rob said, it is almost like a requirement for LJ’s to make a cutting board. Nice work!

great way to keep it off the counter
and out of the water
that can creep under them

keeps them flat

great board too

That’s a beautiful cutting board and a very clever rack. Good work.

Nice. What a good idea.
I think your board is upside down :-)

Now that is what I call “Designer Lumberjocks 101”.... Looks fantastic and what a nice decorative aspect to add to any kitchen. My bride displays our small one on our counter top as well. Think I may borrow a few design aspects off yours to make a free standing holder.

Good stuff!
