They say that practice makes perfect…well give me 15 or 20 more years and I may catch on….lol This is a small cutting board (10” x 12”) for my daughter. She has a pretty small kitchen so less was more in this case. Black walnut and possibly silver maple…well its one of the soft maples anyhow. Had hoped for more contrast between the two woods but didnt quite get what I wanted. Both pieces of maple came from the same 3” x 3” x 12” block so thought it was interesting how different the coloration was. The legs are black walnut and will have felt pads on them. Treated with Howards Buther Block Oil.

Pat yourself on the back, this is a fine cutting board with a great size, mine is similar, and good color choices. Keep at it, board number three next in line, end grain maple and cherry 18×17x2.5”nice.

Now thats a real cutting board Buster
Wood looks at its best when you use the natural
contrasts within one piece of wood.

Can’t go wrong with feet. You made it, she’ll love it, and hopefully use it. I have made many that friends just are reluctant to use. The beauty is absolutely there.
