First Cutting Board

My first cutting board attempt. Another walnut and hard maple project. Finished with butcher block oil. Turned out fairly small, my goal is now to make a “cheese knife” with some left over glue-up of the maple/walnut for the handle. It is the perfect size for a little cheese board.

Only real issue I had with this was a little burn from my router bit on the edge. First time I had used the used table/router/bits I picked up, I think the bit just needs some good cleaning after further inspection. But not bad, adds a little character!

After this little experiment, looking forward to making a full size board down the road….

Welcome to the club. My first board was small also but they come in handy around the kitchen.

Thanks Pdub! just picked up a knife kit from woodcraft, and I have some scrap left over from my glue-up, so i think it will make a pretty cool set. Will be posting up soon!

jjwoodshop,

Turned out nicely, glad to see that you recovered from your “Frustrating Night in the Shop”.
