Cutting board for a friend

A guy I work with wanted a cutting board for his wife for Thanksgiving. Their last name is Campbell and she collects items that have Campbell’s on them. I used a soup can to have the correct lettering style. The board is 11×16 made of maple with a walnut inlay finished in mineral oil. I put some rubber bumpers on the bottom and recessed them just a little so it doesn’t look like and after thought. Cut handles in each end and it’s ready to go. My guess is she won’t use it and it will be on display with her other Campbell’s items.
