This cutting board is made from brown maple and bloodwood. This is my design and aside from cutting the thin bloodwood strips (because I had a bad allergic reaction to bloodwood) I completed it myself.

It was done in two seperate glue-ups. The edges were curved on a bandsaw and smoothed with a spindle sander. It was sanded to 400 grit and finished with mineral oil, then a mineral oil and wax mix.

I bet a husband could learn a lot from a gal like you. Aint that right Joe?

Very well done. I don’t even see any bleeding from the bloodwood to the maple!

Excellent design! I love it, although I’m not sure what being a girl has to do with it?
