Had a nice thick cut off from a piece of walnut lying around. Wanted to make something nice, so I decided on making this bread shaped cutting board. Piece of walnut is about 1-1/4”. Put rubber feet on the bottom so the cutting board will not slide on the counter top. Finished with a food safe cutting board finish.

I really like some of the simpler designs and this really is unique. And who does not like the look of a big hunk of walnut?

Well done. When I cleaned out my mothers apartment last year I found a similar shaped cutting board in two pieces (glue up had failed) and many knife marks. It had a cutout in the lower right corner to simulate a bite having been taken. Looked like it was made of cherry. I jointed the old glue line, re-glued and then planed off the knife marks, oiled and gave to my daughter. It was not as heavy as yours but still useful.

Yep, I like it and may try one myself…, if you made a cheese board, would it be full of holes? :-)

How did you attach rubber feet to the bottom? Will the glue stand the use and all the water cleaning? have you ever thought about epoxying these feet to the bottom?

What did you use to cut the shape?

Hehe, Maybe I will make one of your cheese boards. I cleaned the board from dust before attaching the self adhesive bumpers, and then oiled it. They seem to be stuck quite well, but im sure they will come off eventually. Was thinking of drilling holes to slightly inset the bumpers and glue them with a waterproof polyurethane glue, but ill wait for them to come off before going that far ;). Just used a jigsaw to cut out the shape.
