Getting me feet wet again

Trying to get my feet wet again and learning the ropes over after being in and out, mostly out, of the shop for a while. Thought I’d start with the tried and true cutting boards. Thought about not posting these – but then figured after my last three years of health issues that I should be proud that I can make simple cutting boards again. So here they are in all their glory. :-)

Thanks for looking.

In my opinion, those are far from simple cutting boards. They are beautiful cutting boards. I like the woods used and the sizes of them too. Good job and welcome back to the shop.

Great work! Glad you have returned to us.

As a cutting board maker, I think they’re not so simple…but definitely fun and challenging projects. We’re glad your’re on the mend!

Hey Betsy, nice to see you back.
We all go through some tough times, but each has its own challenges.

Anyway, your boards looks great. And yes, please post whatever you do.

Betsy that is a nice one. I love the pattern the contrasting wood makes. I’m glad that you are back in the shop and I pray that all of your health issues will be healed.
