I made this with some mahogany scraps that I had. Not too difficult, but I have room for improvement. I’ll make some more like this before I attempt any end grain ones.

He’s the cutting board master….
So don’t you be going after his crown!!!

Thanks Eddie, I think.
Jack, that’s what I was thinking. I think I’ll make them for the firefighters who work for me next Christmas.

It looks great, like the wood combo and the grooves around it. Great job!
