Been wanting to do one of these for a while. My son’s 23rd Birthday gave me an excuse. Turned out pretty well. Though, the geometry was a bit trickier than I thought. Good lessons learned for “next time.”

Very cool. All of these cutting boards I’ve been seeing make me want to make my own.

It’s just black walnut for the bricks and hard maple for the mortar. Nothing fancy, but they do look great in contrast to each other.

Jan – the board’s about an inch thick: hefty enough to stand up to heavy use, but not so thick as to be cumbersome to lug around.
