This is the first cutting board that I made for a Christmas present for my uncle who gave me my first hand plane.
I think I made it more complicated than it needed to be while assembling it. But I think I figured it out for the next one.

Its walnut I had left over from another project and some reclaimed maple I got.

I messed up on the cutting order, and you can see with the grain where I had to “cheat”

Thanks for your input.

Looks great! I need to tackle one of those. Still haven’t tried making a cutting board yet…
