One of my 2 biggest shows of the year is in 5 weeks. So building like a mad man.

These are not normal wood for cutting boards. Maple, Red Cedar, Elm and Honey Locust. They are all 11”x17”

Thanks for looking

First… I want to say they are beautiful boards. I don’t want to be an ass like many others on Lumber jocks with project and things. I am just wondering about putting red cedar in a board. Isn’t it a little soft for the cutting abuse it will be getting? Thanks….....

I may be way wrong on the Red Cedar, but it was there, so I decided to try it.

Good job Monte. Most of the people who I have made boards for have told me that they would NEVER use it. When a person gets a board as nice as these, they know that it “really” isnt for use but for show. Also, many of these boards can and will be used as serving/cheese/bread boards. Again, great work and good luck on the show and 2013 !!!

Wow Monte you are really getting ready for your big show.. Very nice cutting boards. I agree your lovely boards will most likely used for serving or display. I like the idea of including a set of display “feet” for all I make for that reason.

You are one of the most versatile woodworkers I know. If it’s wood, you have made it! Nice looking CBs. Best of luck at the upcoming show (hope it’s indoors).
