I know, more boards: but they are fun to design and construct. The users get to enjoy a unique cutting/serving board, a one of a kind. They are happy and we are happy. That is how it is supposed to be for all.
I am utilizing a “feature strip” in most of the boards. This design is borrowed from the segmented woodturner. Endless designs to examine. Picture 5 shows more “feature strips” already glued-up and ready for placement in a board. Picture 6 shows the marketing I do for each board. I make “cards” from wood, 3/32 thick, print clear labels indicating the wood used in each board and instructions for use.

Well if boards are what turns your crank then by all means make boards. I’m sure I can speak for many of us LJ’s when I say that you have a knack for boards. Great designs and wood choices. Keep up the awesome work!!!

WOW would be an understatement ! That is such a wonderful assortment of colors , shapes, and designs.
Do you have a store , or how do you sell them ?

Thanks for the nice words, all. Dusty, I do not have my own store, but I do sell through four retail outlets. Three gift type stores and one wine shop. The boards are on consignment, which enables me to rotate the boards from one store to another. This way I am able to keep the inventory “fresh” in each store. Those boards that do not sell after four stores become the “gift” boards that I let my daughters have to give away as presents.
Some boards are also sold by word getting around.

I make a bunch of boards for a local butcher shop and was wondering how I could identify the types of woods that I’ve used….You’ve given me a great idea for the cards and how to attach them to the boards. Hope you don’t mind my borrowing your ideas! Thanks for posting….and your boards are awesome, mine are pretty simple in comparison

Very fine boards! I like the different types.
I´d like to make some endgrain boards too and have a question:
How do you glue the endgrain wood with the wood with the grain together? Do you just glue it together or do you use biscuits?

Greetings from the Sauerland
