I made this cutting board for my daughter’s Girl Guide group who plan to go to Europe in 2013. To raise funds, the girls will be selling tickets for a draw on this board and a number of other items that have been donated.

The board is 12×18 and is made with strips of Walnut, Cherry and Maple. Finish is mineral oil.

Great combination of wood, as well as the symmetry of the whole thing. All that, and it’s for a good cause too!

Nice looking wood combo : )
Are the feet “stick-on” or “thumb tack” style ?

Thanks to everyone for the positive comments. Dusty56, the feet are the stick-on type bumper pads used on cabinet doors.

Thank you…I just bought some actual rubber feet that screw on for my latest project because I had already applied mineral oil to it before the customer told me they wanted to have feet on it after all. The rubber feet prevent slipping the best so far in my experience. : )

What did you use to join the strips of wood together? biscuits or just glue?
Thanks

Ryno76, the strips of wood are laminated with glue. No biscuits.
