Just finished this cutting board which I will be giving away as a wedding present. I used material that I already had on hand: maple, purple heart, cherry, and walnut. I used the maple to contrast with darker woods and am very happy with the way it turned out. Overall dimensions around 11×14”.
The photos show the board at various stages.
