Just finished a couple of cutting boards. The smaller of the two made of cherry and maple is just the standard pattern from the Wood Whisperer measuring 12.75 X 11.5” and is a little over 1.25” thick. The second is one I made from my own pattern. I haven’t seen anyone else try it and wanted to come up with something a little different. I am happy with the way it turned out. It’s made of Cherry and Walnut and measures about 15” square and 1.25 thick.

These are some great boards.
The first board looks like a spin-off of mcleanva’s pattern.

Wonderful job on creating a new pattern and keeping it aligned. Once you start making them it is hard to stop.

I like the Walnut and Cherry board right now, however , with time and uv exposure , they will end up almost the same color. Ask me how I know ! LOL
Great design though : ) Keep up the good work !

dub560, you’re right. I didn’t see your design before I made this one. If I had I would have given you credit. Thanks for pointing that out!!
