Some time back I latched on to some highly figured Quilted Maple that was supposed to be guitar backs. I laminated a few strips of maple for the body of the cutting board, milled it & then laminated the 1/4 inch thick Quilted Maple to that. I picked up a beautiful Damascus Chef’s Knife at Woodcraft & made slabs for the handle out of some nice Curly Maple making the knife match the cutting board. Both the knife &cutting board are finished with butcher block finish.

Really nice work. They both look beautiful. I love the idea of laminating a veneer on a cutting board. It’s a great idea! For all of the hundreds of cutting boards that I’ve seen on LJ, I’ve never seen anyone do this (or maybe I just wasn’t aware of it).

You’ve really got me thinking now. It’s 10 times easier to do lamination vs end-grain or multipiece glue-ups in terms of effort, and it looks like a million bucks.
