Good evening LJ’s,
One friend helped with this challenge as he provided a cutting board shaped like this. his cutting board was 5/8” thick Maple after seeing his I decided I could make them profitably. He bought his 14 years ago and after running it through my Drum sander to resurface it I traced it out and viola you have my version here:)
Made from 3/4” material and Titebond 3 Glue It took less than an Hour (production time 47 minutes)
I hope you enjoy :)

I have really slowed down here on LJ’s due to other stuff I am doing like the project here :)

That’s pretty nice. You’ve got a great eye for grain. How do you season/seal them?

Very nice!
