so i wanted to make something nice for my dad who recently went through open heart surgery for the second time as well as test the limits for what i could do with limited tools. the cutting board is all reclaimed wood (black walnut, mahogany, and pine). the shakers are the same 3 wood types. i do not own a lathe so shakers were made with a drill press and a hole saw set, thought they came out pretty good considering. cutting board was glued up and cut with a straight edge and circular saw since i don’t own a table saw either. i hope my dad likes them since he is always the inspiration for what i do, he taught me most of my skills and provides the encouragement to push my limits. hope you guys like as well.

For someone with limited power tools, you did a really nice job. Your dad will be proud.
