This is a chopping block that I made for my mother for her birthday. This chopping block is made out of 2” thick black walnut and maple. Has about 15 coats of oil on it because it was such a thick piece of wood.

Can she lift it? Or once you put it in place, will it stay forever? Not much can beat a nice heavy duty wooden work surface in the kitchen! Make sure you teach her how to care for it so it stays this beautiful.

If you think this chopping block is solid, you should see the other chopping block I made. Its four inches thick at it thickest point!

That is a nice board! How did you address the expansion of the maple?
