These are some new cutting boards that I have made in prep for mothers day at the point loma farmers market. Just wanted to share the new ones and see what everyone thinks. Let me know. You can find more pics at my website which has all my recent works posted. Hope you like them, I tried a couple of new things out on these new ones, such as a tree that I routed out in one board and a nice rub through on the edging of another.

The 3D effects on the second board are really nice : )

Did you make allowance for wood movement in that long cross-grained joint?

ts a very small board shouldn’t be a problem

Well, any cross-grain joint over 4” that doesn’t allow for wood movement is going to fail
unless you live where the weather is bone dry year round and never get it damp.
You can glue it with epoxy, put screws thru it, wrap it with an iron band and varnish it but
if the relative humidity changes significantly,
it will still move.

Good to know. I’m in San Diego, might not have a prob, but I will definitely keep it in mind as this is the first time I have done this. I had a small piece of purple heart I didn’t want to go to waste. Hopefully it holds up.

These are really cool, I love the tree you routed out adds a lot to that one, the one in the 2nd pic is fabulous, nice work.

Not hard at all. I used a round nose router bit and drew it freehand. I did the well on the bottom and then made the tree
