I decided that I needed to get in on the cutting board club, so here is my first.

This cutting board is about 300mm x 500mm x 40mm, which is just about as wide as my planner could handle. I think next time I will big a larger one and just use the router planning sled I saw in FWW.

The woods are Maple and Walnut with a Bolivian Rosewood T inlay. This was a birthday gift for my sister.

Thanks for looking

very nice. I love making end grain CB’s. how did you do the inlay? I have a “commission” to build a larger board and wanted to do something special. I like the inlay idea. The other thing you can do is make two relatively narrow boards, run them throught the planer and then glue the two together.

That’s a very nice cutting board for a first one. Have you seen some of the very wild cutting boards some of the members here make. The drunken ones and the ones that look like they are made from woven strips of wood are beautiful too.

You’ll find a lot of uses for a router sled. I keep one set up all the time to flatten wide slabs for benches and table tops. Good luck with yours.
