My version of the Wood Whisperer Cutting Board, and my first project on LJ!
I’ve used Ashwood & Walnut, finished with Food Safe Finish from Chestnut. It was great fun building it!
Thanks for looking…

Well done and welcome Berrie! I’ve watched that Wood Whisperer episode as well and he always makes it look so much simpler than I do. Love the recesses for the fingers.

Hey Berrie, nice to meet you. Welcome to LJs.
That board looks mighty fine. As you may know, a bunch of us here like to make boards too. You have joined the club now. Looking forward to more from you. Maybe you could re-make that board as an endgrain version by just turning each stick another quarter turn before gluing. Or just enjoy what you got.

@ Manzanitaman: Thanx, It’s not that hard to make. Just glue some Ash and Walnut sticks together, and cut that piece into strips. Now you can flip some of the strips 180 degrees. And there is your checkers design. My favourite type of wood are for now Walnut and Ash. I really like the contrast of these two combined. I really do not have much experience with finishes. Just the Chestnut Food Safe Finish for the cutting board and Rustin Plastic Coating for some other stuff. Both of them did the job.
@ Tommy: Thanx mate! I know what you mean, especially the gluing part can be really frustrating.
@SPalm: Thanx! I’ve noticed a lot of cutting boards on LJ. Proud to be in the club ;-) I was supposed to make this board in end grain version, but just before gluing I decided to do it this way. I liked it much better.But more projects are coming, that’s for sure.
