Here’s my finished board, maple, cherry, walnut, Bloodwood frame. I learned a lot during its build and came up with a few ideas for jigs. The few things that come to mind are wood moisture and wood color, grain, orientation. It’s now a wall hanging, but a very cool one. Finished with 4 coats of poly and then buffed to a shine. I will be more selective of wood consistency and color as any imperfections jump out and in my opinion take away and distract from the board.

Maybe next year I will tackle another one of these with the above learnings incorporated.

Merry Christmas.

Nice board, Jeff!

Just finished a couple of “lazy Larry” style. Like you, it was a tremendous learning experience!

Excellent looking board. You got everything to line up really well. You might want to avoid poly on cutting board surfaces, though, since it’s not food safe. Most people use mineral oil and beeswax.

What a lovely looking cutting board. I have seen several post with one of these boards…does anyone know if there is a blog showing just how they are made? Would love to learn.

This blog comes close Hawaiilad,

but CalgaryGeoff’s board is slightly different. I really like these designs and there are thousands of variations possible. CG has done an excellent job patiently fitting all these together! Way to go man!
Merry Christmas!
