A few cutting boards I have made in the past little while. Nothing spectacular but I wanted to share…

1. This is made up from leftovers and I thought it would look nice in our kitchen so I donated it to SWMBO.

2. This bad boy was ordered by a client and measures 16” x 21” (Maple and Jatoba)

3. When I was doing up the Jatoba and Jatoba/Maple boards, I wanted to do a negative look to the J/M so this is a M/J board

4. This is a board that was supposed to travel with me tomorrow but will be staying home in Canada (more in #6). Made from Maple and Bloodwood

5. This little feller goes with the Maple and Jatoba board in #3.

6. Wife and I are heading to Australia tomorrow morning to stay with folks we met on a cruise last May. I wanted to make them a cutting board with Canadian colours in it, Red and White. The closest I could get is Maple and Bloodwood so here it is. Unfortunately, the Maple darkens in hue and the Bloodwood isn’t very red anymore. Oh well, the thought was there…..

They all look really nice. Really fond of board #4. If I may make one comment on it…...I think I would have wrapped it in solid maple so the off-set bloodwood pattern wouldn’t show through the edge.

Nice variety of CB patterns. They will love the CB because it was from you.
