This is one of my largest cutting boards yet. It started out with a 54” Cherry sliding dovetail. This project took me quite a long time, but the end result turned out to be amazing. Wood species: Cherry, Maple, Black Walnut, Purple Heart, & Padauk. Finished with wax and mineral oil.

Very clever use of the dovetail, and a beautiful result. I have a question: what’s that thing with what appear to be handles on the rip fence of your table saw—a giant push stick? (last pic)
