Made these “cutting boards” just for fun out of cut-offs from a set of coasters that I’m making. Maple, cherry & walnut, beeswax & mineral oil finish.

You HAVE to do some end-grain ones now – these will show knife marks really easily! ;-)

Really, this is a great idea for scrap – as well as a conversation piece to show off a business.

Great idea!

Those look great! Good use of scraps. Another idea would be to replace the plastic keyless entry housing with wood ones…

A nifty idea but what could you cut on them that’s legal? Could be a dissecting table for bugs in the wild I suppose.
I’m with KnotCurser on end grain but think they should be Spalm style as well. No cheating with a Sharpie now.

-- Tim - I usally measure twice after I cut......then I know for sure that I cut it short.....

Have your say...
