First Cutting Boards

The first board is Maple, Walnut & Cherry. The second maple and cherry.

The first board was intended to be a small cheese board for a gift, but I didn’t get the glue up just right, so there was a small gap. I kept the board, anyway, since it “looked” nice, but wouldn’t use it as a gift and I didn’t have time to try and fix it.

The second board was the very first one I attempted, though I just recently finished. I got the plans from here, There were supposed to be 3 boards, small, medium and large. Well, after completely butchering the small and medium one, this one was all that was left…haha. This one still had plenty of flaws and made me realize my need for a drill press, but overall, still very happy.

Thanks for looking,

Very good for a first attempt. I looked at the plans and they have a few challenges for a first timer. Overall, the boards look good. Are you going to try again to make the set of 3?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Great boards Chris, if it has flaws you can’t see them in the pictures. Always great to learn things on a project.
