This is a cutting board I made for my brother in law’s father for his 70th birthday. He had seen the cutting board I made for my sister and really liked it, so I was asked to make one special for him. the curved cherry stripe presented itself as one of my biggest challenges to date. It turned out ok, despite the struggle of aligning the center stripe after the cut. thanks for looking.

the wood is maple, walnut and cherry.

I can picture the glue up, and the alignment. Every clamp at the ready!

You pulled it off nicely!

Very nice gift. The curved stripe adds a lot to the board and I like the finger holes as well : )
