I know, I know. These are becoming overdone. Here is mine, made two just like this. One for my mother and one for my father-in-law. Padauk and H. Maple. Fun little project.

I too have caught the bug, until I master the cutting board I will be making more myself. I like your finger pull (for lack of a better word), did you do that with a router? Good job! Thanks for sharing.

The Padauk was great to use. I had one spot with some bad tear-out, but no big deal. The grain and the color is beautiful. I got an awsome piece that had a small amount of purple in it.

I do use my router to make the finger slots, I wanted both sides of the board to be 100% useable. I am real happy with how that turned out.

I’m in the middle of making 4 of these myself and I will be thrilled if mine turn out anywhere near the quality of the board you have made! Looks awesome.
