This is my first attempt at a cutting board. It is maple with mahogany used for the inlay. Since this is my first inlay, it was a bit challenging, but a whole lot of fun! This was given to my sister for her birthday. She seemed to really enjoy it. Now my wife wants one :)

While I can’t say anything good about the Longhorns. . . It is a very nicely done board. Did you use template/bearing for the inlay? Looks great,

I can’t imagine why you have no good comments about the Longhorns Jeff ;) Actually, for the inlay it was all done free hand. I cut the Longhorn out, shaped it, traced it and used a router with a 1/8 bit to carve out the top of the board. I tried to use a template, but the curves were too tight. Thanks for the kind words.

I really like the inlay design. Might want to try a exotic hardwood for the inlay. It will be more durable since it is used for a cutting board. Nice Job
