These are a few of the cutting boards I have been making.

Curly Cherry and Curly Maple 13” x 18”
Curly Maple, Walnut, with Padauk and Yellowheart stripes 12” x 18”

these are fun to make and sell well! I need to have 60-70 made by summer.

Very unique designs. I am sure they will sell. Why do you need 60-70 by summer?

DeGoose posted his cheese paddle here last year(?) and i talked with him about making one. They are a fun way to show the zigzag pattern. I like the off color maple.
I sell these all summer as my summer income. Teachers don’t get paid in the summer. They sell well and I want to get ahead of the building. I sure like using Curly maple and it has been fairly cheap lately.

Very nice boards Robert. Not sure how you did the designs, but they look great. I was wondering how much you folks sell your cutting boards in your neck of the woods. They sell for $40 for small boards up to $150 for large custom designed. Another guy at the market has been making them, but only have 4 on display along with other items. I am thinking of adding them to my band saw boxes.
