I got this design from Ryan shervill. For this cutting-board I used Purpleheart, Walnut, and mainly Cherry. This was kind of challenging to do because of all the peices that had to be joined together. I finished it with a Watco saladbowl finish. This peice is currently for sale .HOPE YOU ALL LIKE IT.

Nice, wonderful combinations of wood. Like the stand. What joinery did you use to attach the sides to the legs on the stand?

Yes I do like it very much, out of interest (also being nosy) I was wondering how long it took you to make the board and what price you are selling this for?

I also ask because when I make an item to order I usually sell them far to cheap, if I was to try and make a living out of my work I would have to treble my price and I don’t think anyone would want to pay the real cost.

maybe I should start a forum topic on this issue!

I love the contrasting wood and design. I never thought of adding a base, great idea.

This must have taken a lot of time.

Now that looks like a cutting board that required a lot of cutting. Great job

Gorgeous cutting board. I like the subtly of the purple heart in the center of the walnut. Thanks for sharing Corey.
