I made this chopping block for my sister’s wedding. I had some 2’’ thick black walnut laying around. This block is designed so to fit a typical pyrex bowl. i routered the cutout so that the bowl sits under the board. This allows her to removed the food from the chopping block and get it into the bowl easily. I finished it with 400, 600, 1200, and finally 1600 grit sandpaper with 8 layers of tung oil.

Very nice board and a great idea on the bowl cut-out. Good job.
