Hello everyone!
I decided to make new cutting boards.
Trying not to be repetitive, I thought about how to change it.
So I started with some cuts saw, coping saw then turning to the courts, and so I had that result.
Also use the router to make a depression all around. This is to take this trouble when resting on a flat surface.
For finish use beeswax.
The wood is algarrobo, 1” thick.
Asado is how we call here to something like barbecue.
Thanks and a big hug.

Very nice. I really like the forms of these and the hand hole in the one board. Creative and unique boards!

Looks good, are they solid pieces, or glued together?

Muy buenas Gerardo. Me gustó el detalle de la agarradera de tres agujeros solapados. ¡Un aplauso para el artesano!

I had to google “algarrobo” to find it in English – it’s a CAROB tree. Wow, qué madera más bella. A mí también me gusta el detalle de la agarradera – muy bien hecho :)

Nice artistry Gerardo. I like the variation from the typical rectangular shape. Good work.
