Made the first one of these for a Christmas swap, it was such a hit I had requests for more!

Woods are Black walnut, Holly, Purple heart & Cherry – wiped on some Cutting Board conditioner.
Thanks for Looking.

Nice board and cutter. Where do you get the cutter from?

Thanks Guys,
Steve, the cutter is made from some .160” Stainless steel rod I had laying around, it runs continuous
through the handle, U-Shaped. Very small holes drilled at the ends, once the holes are drilled I then grind/file/round ends down so that it just barely leaves the the holes. – Strung with .018” Dia. Stainless Steel fishing line leader.

Dusty, once I have one end of the wire tied off, I spring the rod ends together slightly with a clamp, tie the other end off, then release clamp. Seems to work pretty well.
