They will like it every day! thats the best part of a cutting board. How many did you make, thats a lot of wood and I assume a lot of glue…

Because of the way I made this board I had to make all the pieces at least 10” long so I could get them to go through the planer then after gluing up each row before I made the final glue up I cut them to 3” because that was the max I could get through the 16-32 drum sander so yes I have enough to make one more thick board or I could cut them remainder in half again and have 2 boards that are about 1 1/2 – 2” thick. I am going to ask my nephew at the wedding which they would prefer and then finish those and send them later.

As to the glue I used about 1/3 gal of tightbond III and still have another glue up to do and the other boards.

I am doing another for a friend of mine to give to his wife for Christmas and I am using 3 kinds of wood on it, Maple, Walnut and Red Oak and altogether it takes about 38 BF but I bought 50BF so I could select what I wanted and of course with oak and walnut you have to deal with knots and work around them.

Cool cutting board! Like how you personalized it by making a design on monogram patterns. It sure makes a great gift idea. Great work!
