We were short a couple presents for a Christmas gift exchange so I went rummaging through the cut off bin and found a few pieces of walnut and cherry to use. I also had about a 5’ chunk of bird’s eye maple that mistakenly ended up in an order of curly maple, so decided to throw it in. 5 minutes at the table saw, 5 minutes at the planer and 5 minutes for gluing and I ended up with these. I am pretty happy w/ how they turned out.

They look quite nice for a hack job! Get it, cut = hack! You cut the wood, then cut on the board! Lol.

No really, they will certainly be treasured and used with great pleasure!!!

Well done 15 min huh? You must teach us how they come out of the planer all sanded and finished. LOL This would save me so much time! Nice gifts.

No sanding Ken, and just a quick coat of oil. I guess I did forget the edge routing, so maybe 20 minutes.

The picture is a bit deceiving…there is a tiny bit of planer snipe that is visible, but I covered that up in the picture!

Sometimes the wood just speaks for itself and doesn’t need hours of labor to be special. I am sure these cutting boards will be cherished!
