Here is my first cutting board. I made it with some scraps of cherry and walnut along with some maple from the firewood pile.

Can I join the club now? Is there a secret handshake?

Consider yourself “in the club”!

Fantastic board – and considering it’s your first, even better.

Next time post the dimensions and a few more details – we love to know details! ;-)

Very nice cutting board. Good attention to detail on the grain orientation.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Bob: Good point. The board is 9.5” X 15” X 1.5”. I made it out of scraps. It was a good chance to use the drum sander I built last winter. Sure made sanding it a lot quicker. I sanded to 220 and oiled it with mineral oil.
