I made this cutting board as a wedding present with the couples initials inlayed into the wood with aluminium nails. I got the idea from Peter Sandback in this video http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/48470/peter-sandback-nails-his-designs . The Board is made from birch and walnut scraps and finished with mineral oil. The dimensions are 1” x 12” x 17”. The feet are maple buttons that are designed for plugging screw holes. It would have worked better if I inlayed the nails into the walnut, because on the birch you can see aluminium particles lodged in the wood (although i did use a vacuum with the random orbit sander), but it wouldn’t be so obvious on darker woods.
