I’m afraid I may have gotten in a bit over my head. A guy wanted me to make a cutting board for him to give as a gift. Which I did. Well when I gave it to him someone else saw it and wanted one also and so on and so on. Luckily most have been pretty simple like this one. The problem is I can’t make them as fast as people want them. I guess I must not be charging enough!

What type of wood? That’s really nice.

It is roughly 12 X 18. Walnut in the middle with cherry and maple stripes.

Very nice job. Ain’t it great to have people WANT your work?

I love the larger single piece of walnut in the middle. Although the cherry will certainly darken over time, lending more contrast between the maple and cherry, I wonder if a thin strip of walnut around 1/16”-1/8” would help delineate them a bit more? Just a thought.

Not being able to keep up with demand is a good problem to have, as long as you’re not backlogged too badly. As you said, you can always charge slightly more.

I think you right Jonathan. Another thin strip of walnut would have been an improvment.
