I’m looking to start making end grain cutting boards and MTM Wood in (apparently) Russia makes some fabulous cutting boards. I cant, however, tell if its possible to buy plans on his website or just finished items. the price of one item was 16,000 rubles, which is just under $270US, so i’m thinking thats for the finished cutting board and not the plans. has anyone here dealt with him? am i right thatg plans aren’t available through his site?

you are right- the prices you see are for finished product, which some of them cutting boards are mind blowing.
ive studied some of the videos of his on YT. i got to thinking, seeing his layout table with the measurements and watching the process- it might be possible to figure out how to do it.
think thats stopped me is a drum sander. those parts have to be quite exact in dimensions.

He does sell the plans on his website as well as DVD’s of his cutting board projects. Mind you he does take a little while to ship anything you buy to you but the downloadable plans are straight PDF files that you receive a link to download.

On his site (https://mtmwood.com/en) there’s a link near the top of the page on the right for “PLANS” with a pulldown menu. He offers a few free plans and others that you an buy in a PDF format.

thanks for the link. its very helpful. has anyone used any of his plans? are they sufficiently detailed to provide an opportunity to produce something like his results?

Yes, I purchased the Butterfly Cutting Board plan some time ago and altered the pattern and used it on a serving tray.
(http://lumberjocks.com/projects/107751) The plans were well done.

Thanks for the info, Paul. That’s a really beautiful tray. Now I can see that your skills extend beyond modifying a beautifully tricked out 4511 to excellent woodworking.

How thick was the single block that was ultimately resawn for book-matching?

He actually has an app in the iTunes App Store with his plans. Not sure if it’s on android too but I have it on my iPad. It’s done pretty well too.
