Off to a running start it looks like. The boards look great. The fact that you made them from throw away wood is even better. It’s nice to be able to save good wood from the trash/fire bin.

Okay, you put off doing this project, yet when you finally decided to be a part of this small, distinct group, you go to the dumpster, find a few scraps of wood, then create 3 masterpiece cutting boards…You’re the guy who could go to any city in this country and get a job….a really good job. Really nice work. Thanks for sharing. Great profile pic of you and your son.

This is nice work, but one of those posts i can’t show my wife. She thinks I have to BUY all of my wood. Some people try to ruin this for the rest of us!! By the way, where is that dumpster? Keep up the good work

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!
