Great first time job. Cutting boards can be addictive. Don’t get frustrated when working with wood. Working with wood should be enjoyed, almost therapeutic. Think of how wonderful it is for you to take a piece of nature and create something so unique and useful.

Nice job on your first boards! With over a hundred boards made, its still can get frustrating. Keep at it and always try to learn new things and have, fun like mentioned above…

Look fwd to see more.

Great Job! and keep working at it! and have fun!
I try and step away from a project if it gets me frustrated, step back and size up the problem.
I am alot older than you and I have not made a cutting board yet, you have made 2 really great ones!
Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.

Nice cutting boards. Have to agree with all above about getting frustrated … we all do from time to time. Post some of your mission projects soon.
