Got this idea from Duckarrowtypes. Made it for my wife for christmas. She was a bit nervouse to use it. In the end she did, and she loves it! Worked out great, just had to pay particular attention to sizing. Glue up took about an hr. the final size is 13×20. Woods are; figured maple, bloodwood, and black walnut. I wanted the black walnut to give it that added depth, and I think it worked great. Fun project, next I want to try the wavy lined cutting boards I see on the site. I’ll be asking ?’s on that one :-)

Wow, that is a really nice board. Congrats. From the photo, it looks like you did just fine on the glue up. Great wood selection as well.

This is one beautiful cutting board! Fantastic job!
You sure succeded in getting “depth” by using the black walnut, great choice of wood combinations.

Welcome to LJ’s and look forward to seeing more of your projects!

Smart looking cutting board, the colors in it are a knockout. My wife is the same as yours, she never wants to mark up the cutting boards I’ve made for her.

You’re right, the black walnut gives it depth and the figured maple gives it the eye catching POP factor. WELL DONE. Can’t wait to see the wavy pattern.

Although many of us have made this type of woven board here, you just nailed it.
The proportions and wood selection are top notch. I really like it.

Good job, and welcome.
