I recently made this cheese board for a friend of mine to go in his bar in his “man-cave”.

He challenged me to make a cutting board design that looked masculine but beautiful at the same time. This is what resulted, I used Black Walnut and a slab of Tiger maple in the middle to give it that expensive classy old world look. He was very pleased with the result and I’m thinking about making this a regular design for my Etsy shop. What do you all think?

I think that is a great design. Did you make the end pieces bread board joints?

thanks for the comments

After some research on what that is,
yes, yes I did =]

my mentor never called them bread board joints before though, but he was an interesting man if you take my meaning.

I find “V”grooves most difficult to clean on a cutting board and these will be even more fun with the stopped ends. Other than that, it looks very manly , yet real purty at the same time : )
Your finish used was / is ?

I’ve had the best luck with Mineral Oil on all of my boards as well….On occasion , I’ll use some beeswax mixed into the MO if I want a little sheen ( not Charlie) LOL
