My friend wanted a 2” x 24×36 cutting board made of walnut and maple. I said “that’s not a cutting board, that’s a counter top!” Anyway, we compromised (since it was my wood). It’s 1.7” X 20” X 30”. It’s very heavy too so we made a handle on the end and even sculpted in some places for the fingers.

Sorry the picture is so poor. I didn’t take one when I finished it and asked my friend to send me one after the fact.

It could be a hat rack if he wants it to be. It looks good, looks like it could stay on the counter as is and be a nice talking piece for guests also. It could also sit on the sink, cut, push to the disposal kind of board.

Everyone needs a cutting board, and someone has to make them. I’ve got some glued up for finishing today.

It almost has to stay on the counter by the sink because it’s too heavy to move around.
