I made this cutting board in two sessions of a workshop at the University of Oregon’s craft center. I have more photos somewhere, but it’s a pretty standard cutting board. However, it’s also my first cutting board so I know how to make them now.

I gave it to my brother and his wife when they visited for the fourth of July, as they’re much more skilled in the kitchen than I am and are more likely to use it!

Edited to add – I’ve added the other photos, but I also forgot to take any measurements of the thing. I think it’s about 17” by maybe 10” or so, and less than an inch thick.

Nice cutting board. I’m sure it will get frequent use.

This is very nice!!

How thick is it? I think something like this might be adapted to a pizza peel design.

I forgot to take measurements before I gave it away! I think the final size is about 11×17x1 inches. I believe the strips were cut at 1 1/4 inches, or possibly 1 1/2.
