The wife has been pestering me for a nice cutting board, so I made her one. It’s nice enough for my standards, but pretty basic compared to some I’ve seen. It’s made of cherry and non-steamed walnut. I used the router to round over the edges and give the bottom a lip for easier handling. It’s 18” x 18” x 2”.

I really like the way you cut the ends. I havnt seen a cutting board like that most of the time they are just a rectangle. Well if you dont mind I will be stealing that idea for my next one. Nice job.

The corner cuts were an accident actually. I dropped it when I was taking it if off the clamps from the glue up and chipped a corner. There was no sanding it out so this was the solution. Be advised, cutting through the thick end grain with all that glue will make a blade smoke like crazy. I thought my dust collection bag was on fire at one point. I had to pitch the blade after this project.

Looks good, like the shape and the checkered design. Well done!
