This is by far my biggest cutting board yet. Made of birch and 21”x34” and nearly 3” thick. Topping the scale at over 34 pounds (15 kilos). With a board this long I wanted it to be as stable as possible, so to help minimize warp I made it extra thick and laminated in length, width and thickness (see pics 2 &3). Pic 4 shows the size of cutting board I usually make. Pic 5 is this cutting board on top of my Grizzly 1023 to give a sense of scale.

Thanks for looking

did you do the finger joints yourself, or did you buy the wood that way?
great looking board, maybe you should put wheels on it.

We have entered new territory with you and Larry describing cutting boards by weight.

Next up is “I built a 40 pounder” – sounds like fishing…

Seriously, that is a nice looking cutting board.
