Last week I spent some time on making new cuttingboards. A couple of new designs and one old design.

I wanted to make a slide-show telling you how I made the boards but something went wrong with the camera !! On my blog there’s some info on how I made the first serie’s of cuttingboards.

Woods : walnut and ash
Finish : Osmo Hardwax

There are still new idea’s coming to me so there will be some more in the future… many ideas… little time…....First I want to learn how to turn threads by hand on my woodlathe…...

I like your new designs, they do make me a little cross eyed trying to figure out how you assembled them. I particularly like the three piece board. What type of dowel did you use to connect them?

Nice additions to your previous boards! You’re acquiring quite an arsenal of eye catching pieces.

eye catching to say the least…......... wow Rick, I could learn some things from you on how to design and execute patterns like these. If you like to take a Florida vacation this winter just let me know… I have guest accomodations and a feel I can promise a certain guarantee of a good time. No kidding.

very nice work

WOW!! This board is alive, It comes at you from all four corners. At first ,I thought that it was rounded, and domed shape. Sorta looks like a pillow. Excellant workmanship.
