This pig pattern is directly from the cutting board my grandfather used for years. The original hangs on my wall, falling apart. I get such joy out of making these. Definitely brings back memories of my childhood.

Made with maple, cherry, bloodwood, purpleheart, and yellowheart.

I was using my grandfathers until it started falling apart. :( Not sure what his was made of. The wood is discolored from years of use and the surface is painted red and black (except for the knife marks that wore the paint off) Thank you for the compliments!

Nice looking board. I’m confused, aren’t there three pigs?

It looks good, like the pig shape and the wood colors. Great job!
