These are made out of walnut, maple, and have beech in the middle. They are replacing some old ugly plywood boards in my sister n laws old house. Much easier and quicker than end grain boards. Cutting boards to slide out from Under the counter are much more conducive to flat and edge grain anyways. One is 14 inches wide and the other is 18 and they are both 23 inches deep, about 3/4 inch thick. The beech looks really nice and I think I would use it again in cutting boards. Never used it before, any info on whether it is good, bad, durable, etc. is appreciated. Thanks for looking

Them are sure Purty! Think she’ll even use them? she might be afraid she’ll scratch them up…...

I know that some I’ve made now hang on walls as trophies instead of doing the job they are designed for.

Replace the crappy looking pull out cutting board we never use cause it’s kinda gross… What a great idea! Next weekend – we have a plan!

These look awesome and I hope mine turn out half as nice. Many thanks for the inspiration!
