I had some leftover scraps of ripped mahogany and black walnut lying around. 90% of the time my wife and I find ourselves using our small plastic cutting board for smaller things like fruits and vegetables instead of our large butcher block. It’s also my sister’s birthday soon so I figure why not make some small cutting boards.. At 9×5.5×0.5 these little guys should do the trick!

Thanks for checking them out!

Nice looking boards : )
If you have a router and 45 degree chamfering bit , you can dress up that hole and make more user friendly , and prettier as well : )
Just a tip : )

Nice boards! Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, most of my bits are non bearing so it’s tough for me to get clean lines fighting the collar. Most of the rounding was done by hand sanding.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a chamfering bit with bearing , and you’ll use it more often than you think : ) Keep up the good work !

Nice cutting boards. I had a question on how you were putting your ititials on them. Are you burning it on or using another type of engraving tool. Just curious, thanks.

I wrote them out with a pencil and lightly traced it with a wood burning tool. I got the smallest tip I had and practiced a few times on some scrap to see how the tool reacted when moving over the grain. Ended up doing a final sand that removed the pencil.

Note: If you end up including the year make sure and put the apostrophe before the number unlike my mistake :)

They look good and way better than the plastic ones, very handy for cutting small stuff. Well done!
