I salvaged the wood from some kitchen cabinets that were going in the trash. I was left with this odd size 7.5×17 x 1.25. Ill call it a bread slicing board/bread serving tray. Recessed grooves to easily pick it up. This was not only my first hardwood project but also my first project using my new Dewalt 735 planer. (pretend the bread in the last picture is a nice freshly baked loaf of home made banana nut bread….mmmmm)

:) thanks Monte. No experience, just very observant. Too many great cutting boards on here for me not to take a whack at it.

I made a similar board for the spouse and questioned the dimensions too. Seems today that it is the one that gets the most use. Great looking project made better because of the surprise outcome!!

The wood appears to be Poplar. Very nice first board : )
I made my first CB from Poplar and it looked nothing like yours does ! Congratulations : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
