OK, I caught the bug from many of you Lumberjocks, (especially from Degoose) and had to make some cutting boards. Some are gifts and some will be sold (hopefully). It is fun to try to come up with some new designs, I have some ideas in the works that I hope to be able to post at a later date.

Very nice job on all of them!

If these represents your first board, I can’t wait to see when you become “skilled” at them! ;-)

I really like Pic 4 – the flip-flopped grain pattern at the center with the Red Oak is really neat!

The really cool part about these type of boards is that no two are alike!

Keep up the great work and welcome to the club. Be warned though – it’s addicting. I am just finishing my 15th one tonight – Larry must have done over a thousand so far! I doubt he even knows any more…...
