By far not the most beautiful cutting board, but for me it is a joy to make. I will be making 6 for the holidays.
This cutting board was only made with hand tools as I have nog electricity in my shed. It was made from old chamfered table legs and cut of peaces of walnut. They were dimensioned first with the scrub plane and later with a wooden jack plane. Then sawed, glued together en flattened with a block plane. The recess for the fingers is made by boring two holes with a hand auger and then removing the waste with a chisel. Not as beautiful as with the router but ok.
I finish them with raw tung oil.
