These have been a long time coming. It’s taken awhile to get these out of the shop and ready for giving. All the wood is maple, cherry and walnut. I’ve got six altogether ready to go. My next challenge is going to be one of those 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation cheese boards. We’ll see how that goes!

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Lew. They’ll all be finding new homes before the new year. (My housemate is secretly glad of that. I don’t think she believes that cutting boards on the hearth are a very good decorative addition to the house!)

They are just lovely boards, not sure I’ll use it for chopping salad if I have one. Too beautiful to be in my kitchen.

Very nice work Betsy. I have seen a number of these on LJs maybe someone could tell me if there’s a blog on how to make these. I have a lot of scraps that would do nicely for one or several of these for Christmas gifts.

Thanks everyone.

Shawn all the boards are about 12×15 or so. I’ve made them bigger and smaller depending on the scraps I have laying around.

Dock – there are several blogs on doing the cutting boards. I’d get a link for you but the site is so slow I can’t bounce back and forth. I’ll try to find some for you once the site speeds up a bit. With that said degoose has done some blogs on his boards, so that may be a good place to start.
