Here are a few cutting boards I have finished lately. I am new to making them, been doing it for about two months now after being accepted as a vendor into the local farmers market. My real love is box making, but there is no one in my area that makes any cutting boards, so the market is wide open for me.
The first one is an ‘incra’ style walnut and soft maple one. I wish I had an incra fence, but was able to pull it off with my factory one.
The 2nd one is probably one of my favorites, I made it from a few old beams I got from a collapsed barn. The woods are oak and poplar. Something about the way the mineral streaks go through the poplar sections is amazing. I wish I had about 20 more boards of it, but unfortunately I only have one, lol.
The 3rd is just an edge grained one I made to show off a piece of curly oak I found in my stockpile. The other woods are walnut and elm.
The 4th is an end grain one with walnut and ambrosia maple. I thought it was really cool how the color showed up in the maple with it being end grained.
The 5th and last is just a standard end grain one with walnut and hard maple. I like it but hate how I can never seem to route out the juice groove without burning it in the corners.
Thanks for looking!
