I thought I’d try something new, yet simple. The wood is Ipe, with maple dots and dashes.
The message is in Morse code…the possibilities are unlimited, but I picked an easy message for my first attempt.

Thanks for looking.

I’d say the message is appropriate.

A more complex morse code would be fun too, but that is simple pleasing

Perfect message and a great looking cutting board. A perfect gift for some of my ham radio friends. Thanks for sharing this. Mark

To save my fellow luddites from having to look it up, the message is “EAT”.
dot = E
dot dash = A
dash = T

zindel it does work upside down – it’s TNE which must stand for “tomorrow no eat” and is obviously an editorial about the current economy :-D

(tongue firmly in cheek)

great cutting board!

Morse code is relegated to wood projects now, since it was declared obsolete in 2007:

Still, it’s a really nice cutting board and I like the concept.

I have an external hard drive at work made by Western Digital that has words around the outside in Morse Code, designed to look like vent holes. Quite amusing when I point it out at work. Most people don’t even notice that the holes are dashes and dots.

Unique and useful, nice work. If you flip it over does it read “tae”?
