Here is another morse code cutting board. I chose 2 very straight grained pieces of 1×6 Ipe, left over from a recent deck job. They came from different pieces, but are so similar, that they could be from the same tree. The code is maple. The size is 10.25” x 17”. Finished with mineral oil.

Thanks for looking.

My dad was a signalman on an aircraft carrier during the Korean War. He used morse code. I haven’t seen nor heard much about it since then. Great job on the cutting board! I like it,

Nice cutting board and nice way to learn the code. I take it one dot is E and O is dash dash dash from SOS. The only other thing I know is dah dit dah dit dah dah dit dah. I used to send that on the horn when I went by my buddy’s house who was a ham radio operator. I heard that a lot in his radio room! It it a CQ ( which meant seek you) when someone wanted to get a hold of you on the radio.

Great use of leftover Ipe, I still have many boards people gave me after the finished their decks,
Lovely contrast against the weathered deck.

Have your say...
