A friend of mine is a fantastic chef and restaurant owner in Kansas City. He and I were talking about cutting boards and I told him I’d make him one. This cutting board is made of black walnut. It’s roughly 20”x25”x2.75”. I treated it with mineral oil only. No stains or finishes. I put Brusso brass feet on the bottom. It was fun to make. I’m thinking of doing a bunch of them at once because production wise this is an easy task. When it’s a one-off, this takes a great deal of time. I’m amazed at how many board feet it takes to do one of these. Costly, but worth it.

Very nice Thomas! The little feet are a nifty touch! Almost a shame to whack the heck out of it with a chef’s knife! lol. :)

Nice looking board!

I’m curious about your comment regarding how many bf it took to make. I’m figuring about 12 or so?
