I’ve been wanting to make a cutting board for a while, but once I joined LJ’s and saw some of the amazing boards that were being made, I new that would be my next project. I made this from Cherry and hard Maple scraps that I had. I routed recesses into the ends for handles, and it’s finished with mineral oil. Hopefully more to come soon.

Came out really nice, I like the handles you routed out.

Thanks everyone, I learned a few things on this one that I’ll keep in mind for my next one. It was a lot of fun to make.
