Cutting Board

This cutting board consisted of cherry, white oak, and maple. I think the white oak was a bad choice in hind sight since it is an end grain cutting board. Just didn’t like the look. It actually came out a little small and light as I was under the gun and running out of time ( Christmas gift.). So I tried something new by adding book matched figured white oak to the underside as an experiment to add more heft. I figured it couldn’t hurt too much since it was an end grain cutting board. I guess time will tell.

I can’t imagine cutting on such a fine piece of work, however in saying that, I’m sure use and age would only bring out a beautiful glow.

That’s looking pretty nice.
It looks from here that the grain is pretty tight on that timber. I bet it will be just fine.
It also looks like that sucker has some heft to it.

That piece on the back is just stunning.

Very nice board, the stiped oak on the bottm is nice. Like the bevel on the top. White oak is ok, red oak bleeds through very fast when applying the finish.

All these darn cutting boards start to look the same to me…
Serious though nice work on the end grain…nice and tight… they can be a bugger to glue up…I like the chamfer on the edged too…

Directly into my favorites …that White Oak looks perfect against the Cherry and the underbelly is fantastic : )

Hey djnphoto:

I can’t take the credit for this design.
I actually got the idea, pattern, inspiration and and how to from Spalm’s blog titled “Another Cutting Board Design”. This was one of many truly unique and wonder designs he has shared with everyone. Take a look at his blogs and projects.
