I was inspired by a local woodworking artist/friend who made a “quilt” cutting board for his wife. I’m also inspired by Steve’s amazing 3D boards but I wasn’t brave enough to try them… yet. My equipment is small and very limiting so this is my second cutting board ever – the first was done 25 years ago in one of my first woodworking classes. This recent effort is me getting back on the horse, so to speak.
I used black walnut, maple, mahogany and bay laurel for the large squares, and for the multi-squares I used the same but also added cherry, and apple from last year’s back yard trimmings. I think it was apple… It might have been nectarine. Once we cut those limbs and they sit around drying for a year, I kinda lose track of which is which.

My wife is a quilter. She would love that, so I am not going to show it to her! Very well done. I’ll keep this idea in my hip pocket and surprise her one of these days.
