I made this board for my brother’s birthday. We both were huge zelda fans. This board has one side finished for cutting and the other for display. I poured epoxy on the one side. Its hard to see in the photo but the boards thicknesses are different under the epoxy giving it a much deeper look. The triangle is actually 1/8 in deeper than the surrounding walnut.

Oh man, I am not going to get the zelda song out of my head until I play it now. Off to find a NES emulator. Cool cutting board by the way

Beautiful work. I would probably display this, not cut on it.

I agree! Zelda games are the best. I just bought the original gameboy just to play links Awakening. I am also working on a Mario cutting board so stay tuned!
