Here is another FWW cutting board I’ve made for my in-laws for Christmas. This time the design was my own, however the process is still straight from the Scotty Lewis board. The strips are cherry/maple and walnut set into edge grain maple. I gathered some of the curly plane shavings to be a bow when I give it to them.

As always thanks for looking… and you stay classy San Diego!

Wow – that’s fantastic. LOL I bet it takes a lot of guts to slice into that nice maple board to add the strips :) But it was definitely worth it.

James, This board is truly beautiful. There is no better gift to give than something made by yourself. When you do that you are giving part of yourself. Now one observation and I’m sure you have thought of this, when you added strips you crossed the grain somewhat. what do you think of wood expansion and do you think it will have an affect. Looking at the fww design they mostly followed the grain. That took lots of courage and confidence to use this design. Outstanding.

Nice Job. Those long sweeping curves require a steady hand on the band saw. The thick laminated stripes are great.

How do you make boards like this? Do you just cut on the BS then glue back together with laminated strips? I’d imagine those rough BS edges make it tough to glue back up…

A great looking box! were the bows done with steam bending? Though, my favorite part would have to be the Ron Burgundy reference. Classic MacGruber!
