This Woodsmith designed cutting board was made using Oak for the main surface, with Cherry Handles and Walnut plugs. The Oak was found at a trash dump and came from a set of mobile home stairs. The thickness was 2-1/2” which planned down to beautifully to 1-1/2” stock.

Bryan – very nice – great use of scrap wood to say the least. I love this design and tried my hand at myself awhile back here.

Thanks for posting.

I remember seeing that issue and thinking I would build some myself but never got around to it. Yours are motivating me to move them up the to-do list.

Those are really nice boards. I like the design of using three different types of woods for completion of the project. Congrats!

Sharp looking boards – and great to know where the repurposed stock came from. Boards with a story!

Very, very nice design. One question about the oak. How do you prevent the wood from turning dark from water? I have always had problems combining water and oak. Wood bleach fixes it but a pain.,
