My first attempt at a drunken cutting board. Cherry and Walnut, finished with mineral oil and wax blend. Thanks to Don1960 for the post of his drunken cutting board and to poroskywood for his blog on making a drunken cutting board. Here is his blog..

If your wondering about my title, making these reminded me of the movie “The legend of drunken master” with Jackie Chan. In the movie Chan studies a form of drunken martial arts that used kicks and strikes with movements that make you look drunk. This fighting style is meant to throw your opponent off trying to defend against the strange movements. Better yet if you actually are drunk, you become an even better fighter, if you can control yourself somewhat. Now the disclaimer. Being drunk does not make someone a better woodworker ;), I’ll stick to just making drunken cutting boards while sober :). Thanks for reading my ramblings, and looking at the pics.

Very nicely done. I like the reference to the drunken master. Everytime I see such a great example of precise cutting, it boggles my mind. Did you just use a bandsaw or was there some other tool involved?

Edit: Sorry I just saw a link to your Blog. I’ll go look at that.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Thanks Mark, its actually easier than it looks. Just a matter of making smooth cuts on the bandsaw and tight fitting joints when doing your glue up.

reminds me of the checkered flag at the end of a race.
