This was a commissioned piece, to be used as a holiday gift from customer to his wife.
This is by far the largest (and heaviest) cutting board I have made to date.
It is 13×19 inches overall, 1 5/8 inches thick, and contains 190 individual pieces.
Woods used are Walnut, Cherry, White Oak and Maple.
I also had to use a bit of epoxy due to a couple of larger knotholes that I couldn’t sand out – I figure they just add more character. :-)
Finish was three coats of food-grade mineral oil over the coarse of five days.
I delivered it today and the customer was pleased – that is what matters the most!
BTW, if you are into building these and don’t have the CBdesigner Software, download it today!!!! Picture 4 is an exported image of what my board would look like when finished – pretty close eh? It also gave me an exact cut-list and guide to creating this. Fantastic software!
