I made over 40 of these for Christmas presents! All are slightly different so I had fun using up a lot of those little pieces a good woodwork refuses to throw out as scrap. You know ~ “Humm .. I could use that little piece for something down the road”. Mostly cherry with some strips of maple, mahogany or padaukb and walnut. Mineral oil rubbed in for a finish.
I call them cheese boards because everyone who received one said it was to nice to cut on. There are a few more here: https://plus.google.com/photos/118380240473440547235/albums/5963350227548889873

David, very nice work. Neat patterns. I have heard similar comments about not cutting on the board. I ask them, if they cut on both sides at once. If not, cut on one side and save the other side for serving/displaying.

Very nice Christmas presents. I like them all, but especially the 3D effect you created in the middle of the paddle shaped board.

Very nice. I can relate, I have more ‘scrap bins’ than good wood. What I can’t see saving becomes kindling. To me it’s rewarding to see what can become of scrap and off-cuts.

They all look great and well designed. Like the woods used and finish. Great job!

Have your say...
