This is a companion piece to another cutting board that I made trying to learn to use curves and ribbon pieces practicing for a drunken cutting board. This one came out nice and simple but I prefered the companion piece over all and it is posted in my projects also from a few months back. The woods are mahogany and ambrosia maple. The dimensions are about 16 inches by 7 inches.

Nice looking board you have made. Although I’m not a fan of face grain or edge grain boards I really like the wood combo you have made. I prefer end grain boards for the durability but this looks great. I have a customer that I make edge grain boards for 5 at a time and she just loves them.

Nice work and good luck on the drunken board as well,

Larry will be proud.

Nice cutting board. Were the pieces band sawed together to maintain the perfect curves?

Ken, I agree and like the end grain boards too but just wanted this one to show some pretty grains and look nice. I sacrificed some function for durability but it was a good trade.
