Kind of a simple board, but I was really happy with how it turned out. I drilled a hole out of the corner with a forstner bit to act as a finger hold. Finshed with mineral oil and wax combination. Thanks for looking.

Very nice …I just might have to steal that highly figured curved line idea from you : )

Nice combination of woods. The Tiger Maple is beautiful – it looks almost copper colored in the first picture !

That’s an awesome cutting board. I like the curve you added in the middle though; creative.

It may have been simple to make, but it OOOZES elegance! Really nice choice of woods and design.

It reminds me of a bar board I made a while back for my Brother – like yours, I thought it was simple until I heard the “oohs and ahhhs” from him and his family. :-)

Great work!

Thanks Bob, I took a look at the bar board you made. I can see why it got a lot of oohs and ahhhs. Very nice.

Kevin, Very nice

I must admit I would put it on a stand

It’s art, you took nature and made it

look good,

Jamie

Jamie, Thank you so much. This is why I do woodworking, for those times when you build something and it just suprises you.
