Had an old buddy from college recently contact me to commission a cutting board for his wife’s birthday. He requested that it be mostly walnut, and I added in a little maple for some nice clean contrasting lines. I tend to put feet on my cutting boards, but he did not want them, so I included a pad to put under the board to hold it in-place while in use (pictured in the first photo).
