My wife requested a cutting board. I have seen some amazing boards posted here. But, I decided to start with something simple. I followed the Wood Whisperer video for an end-grain board. Thanks to Mark for that.
The material is maple and black walnut. I used Salad Bowl Finish from General Finishes.
I read some great threads here on LJ about options for feet on a cutting board. I used rubber feet from the hardware store. These are shown in the last photo. They lift the board enough to be able to pick it up easily. After testing this out, I opted to not cut the handles in the bottom that are described in the video.
It was a lot of fun to make this. I can see how a person could get hooked on making cutting boards. Maybe I already have an idea for Christmas gifts.
