Here’s a rather large cutting board I made for my mother-in-law’s birthday. Nothing too fancy in terms of design, but the wood sure is pretty :)

Length is about 25 inches, 2.75 inches thick…weighs a ton.

That is quite nice. Looks pretty fancy to me and I am sure it does to your mother in law as well.

Now I really like this one….

I’d be half tempted to use one side as a cutting board and let it do double-duty in the shop as a small workbench. Good job!

Nice board, at least it won’t be moving when it is used and you can exercise when moving it. I like the color combination and the simplicity of the design.

Man, that is a great cutting board, great wood combination. Is that Walnut, Maple, Purpleheart and Yellowheart? What a great gift.
