I found another sofa next to a dumpster waiting to be picked up. I happened to have a sledge, prybar, and a utility knife in the truck so I started to dismantle it. To my surprise I found some beautiful walnut and oak. After cutting off the staples and bad pieces I was left with enough usable wood to make a cutting board. I added a 30 degree chamfer along the bottom like last time. The final measurements are 11×15 x 1.125. Its a little thin for my liking but id much rather have a thin cutting board for free than see all that beautiful wood rot in a landfill.
