Hello , this is another commisioned piece made from Maple and Black Walnut . It is 16”wide x 20” long plus the handle adds about 5” to it and it is 9/16” thick . I reduced the thickness from 3/4” due to the weight factor for the elderly couple that ordered it from me. They love it and commented on how much they thought it was going to weigh due to its size , which made my day : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Great design and execution. Is it a cutting board or a pizza peel? Either way, it is not only beautiful but also functional. Thanks for sharing Dusty.

Looks great! What finish did you use? It has a nice gloss to it.

Hello , Trifern and thank you for the comment . The cutting board is 9/16” throughout where as a pizza peel would be tapered along its length . It is certainly large enough to support a pizza , but I think the handle might be a bit short for reaching into an oven (< 5” long )

Hello Jeanmarc and TedM , The woods are Maple and Black Walnut and I sanded it to 220 grit and then applied Mineral oil as always : )

Thank you for all of the comments folks , they are very much appreciated as are critiques of my workmanship , good or not so good : ).... LOL….Have a wonderful weekend everyone !

A very nice cutting board. I appreciate your consideration of the weight factor for those who are going to use it. I also like your giving the dimensions of the board. The 5” handle looks nice and the finish is very good.
