First couple cutting boards made for friends with their wood preferences. I created the center squares first, then built the rest of the boards around them. Finished with just butcher block oil. Thanks for looking.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cocobolo, Koa and Wenge in a cutting board together. Probably because of cost. Some nice wood. Looks great.

Those would look great just hanging on the wall. I especially like the result of the first one. Great job and thanks for sharing.
