My wife received a bamboo Ohio cutting board at Christmas, and the my grandma mentioned how much she liked it…seven times. Taking the hint, the wife wanted to buy her one, but I chose to do one better. Using ours as a pattern I made 3 for Mother’s day – one for mom, grandma, and mother-in-law. Perfect chance to work out the new (old) bandsaw I just picked up and rebuilt (more on that later – got a great deal on an old 18” Grizzly, little TLC and she’s humming better than new)

Edge grain boards from walnut, ambrosia maple, and purpleheart. Hand jointed/planed as I don’t have access to a planer or jointer at the moment, and the purpleheart has a tendency to tearout on all but the sharpest blades. Bandsaw took it to within 1/8” of pattern, then used a spiral pattern bit in router table to match the ‘template’ perfectly. Light roundover then alot of sanding and they cleaned up well. Just in time as they’ll be delivered this weekend for an early Mother’s day gift.

Touched off with a few push-in bumpers from Lee Valley, and of course the shamrock brand on the back.

I like this idea. Those would sell well I would imagine if you desired to do so. Nice work on them.
