That’s a very nice look. I’ll bet they are strong enough to hold up a truck. Great work.

They look great. I’ve been doing little projects using laminated plywood. I was going to ask if a cutting board can be done using laminated plywood. You answered my question. Thanks for sharing.

Nice looking boards. Would the glue in the plywood board be food safe?

(Must be some what safe after 30 years and hundreds of them in use.)

Great looking boards. The stand is also an interesting design as well.
