I make a great Chicken Marsala, but the two ladies in my house complain that although the sauce tastes great, the chicken is like rubber. The problem was that I was not pounding the chicken before I sauteed it… so here is a small but thick cutting board for pounding my chicken (and other meats as the case may be).
Cherry and Purpleheart, grain sequence matched, end grain up.
10.5×9.5, 2.5 thick.
Salad bowl finish.
When I made the last cross cut to turn the grain up there was enough bowing to break some of the glued boards. The only solution was to re-cut where the seams came apart. In doing that, my Purpleheart diamonds got a little messed up. All good—it has that homemade look ;)
