Christmas present for my mother in law. She said she think’s it’s too nice to use so I told her that next time I was at her house if it hadn’t been used I’d use it as a chopping board. It is meant to be used!!
Instead of doing the usual checkerboard type pattern I offset them slightly to create a bit of an illusion so it would look like the lines were curved. I also cut some of the cross lengths at slight angles. Mahogany and hard maple. Normally I think Mahogany isn’t the best choice for a cutting board since it has fairly open pores (although I know of people who make and use them) but since this is meant only for cheese I wasn’t too concerned.
