Great combination of woods – they really go well together. I like your hinged approach.

That folding cutting board is really cool. Beyond building a great project… that is a really cool idea as well.

This is a great idea! I like how it’s there when you need it, but folds out of the way when not in-use.

Did you simply screw it into the brackets, or did you add the metal inserts so that it can be screwed and unscrewed without stripping the threads in the wood? I’m thinking you’ll want to give it a thorough cleaning from time-to-time and that would make it easier, as well as less wear-and-tear on the wood.

I also like the way the pattern changes from one end of the board, to the other. Nicely done!

Folding shelf brackets attached to the wall and the cutting board with wood screws. Easy to remove if you need to. Thanks….........
