I would recommend a search on this site. search for “cutting board”. Then when the results pop up refine the search by clicking “blogs”. I am guessing there are over 100 blogs on this subject. Once you complete a simple one or two check out degoose’s and spalm’s blogs, amazing stuff. You can also check out what I have made and if you have any specific questions pm me.
Good Luck
