This cutting board is a gift for a lady that I have never met but will on Monday. Some of the mugs from my previous post will be there as well.

The board is 18” x 13” and 1-1/2” thick. It’s made of Hard Maple, Bloodwood, Hickory, Black Walnut and Cherry.

PS – to gfadvm, it’s not for who you think, it’s for her mother.

Nice job and from the dimensions, it could really take some serious use and keep on going!

Monte…that is a very nice cutting board but those woods will definitely make it heavy…putting wheels on it?

Good lookin board Monte! Good choice of woods too! It will be nice and sturdy and last forever. I love hickory and walnut together in a board, one of my favorite combinations. Well done!
