Hello Lumber Jocks, I used to think cutting boards were just a few pieces of wood glued together??? but after seeing some of Dennis’s boards & a how to e-mail from him I came up with this board. It turned out quite a bit bigger than I planned (22 3/4 X 14) so I thoght maybe it could be used as a surfboard or kneeboard LOL. It was looking to good to start cutting any off so I left it those dimensions. it has now turned into a serving tray that i am giving to my son since he has not rec’d any of my woodworking projects. I now look @ every cutting board on LJ & have a couple more in progress. ( Thanks Dennis for giving me more projects… The wood used is Walnut, Paduk, Hickory, Cherry, & Maple. Thanks for looking, & comments…...........................Jack

Big boards are great for a cheese or fruit selection at a party. I am sure your son will use this beautiful board more often than you would expect! I am glad you got the bug – this is a lovely design.
