I am getting addicted to making these. Most of them have been gifts so far, people really love them. I was going to post them individually but that might be too many!

Here are the types of wood in each photo:

1. Brazilian Cherry, Purpleheart, Ash
2. Walnut, Maple, Cherry
3. Walnut, Maple, Red Oak
4. Maple, Red Oak
5. Maple, Walnut, Ash

Thanks for looking!

they look really nice.. but you might want to check to make sure what woods you use are not toxic.. that can be bad…

Looks to be ok according to the wood databise online. Very uncommonly it can cause skin irritation, but nothing major. Seems that most wood does have uncommon side effects.

I went to an allergist once and he said that people can be allergic to ANYTHING – so brazilian cherry (Jatoba, right?) appears to be ok. Thanks for the reminder, Randall.

They all look great. Making CB’s can be addictive. I find myself trying to design something nobody has done before, but it is getting harder and harder with all the great designs posted on LJ’s. I also check on toxicity with all the different woods I use. I often wonder if someone with an allergy to peanuts would be affected by a walnut CB. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. I have wondered the same thing about walnut. Particularly since close friends of mine have a son who has a peanut/walnut allergy.

the part I hate the most about cutting boards is…you go thru all the trouble to make an outstanding looking board..then run a knife over it when you use’s like the first cut hurts!! LOL
