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

Fun!

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.

Looks great to me. Morse code was the first things I learned as a scout

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