It seems that everyone is building cutting boards of all types. I believe it is becoming a right of passage like building your own router table. :)

I used the “classic” Purple Heart/Hard Maple combination.

Thank you. These projects are simple but they really make you appreciate the terms “flat” and “square”.

The design credit goes to Marc Spagnuolo from www.thewoodwhisperer.com

Awesome job! I know this sounds like a dumb question, but where do you get the instructions to make something like this? I would love to make a cutting board.

I posted a video from Marc Spagnuolo on this website: http://www.woodworkingforall.blogspot.com/ The videos are called “A Cut Above” parts 1 and 2.

I would suggest watching them a few times and take notes. It is very important that you keep the dimensions matching. It doesn’t matter if the dimesions are not exact but they must match. In other words, if you have a Purple Heart strip that is 1 1/2” and the corresponding Hard Maple strip ends up a little less, mill the Purple Heart strip to match. If you don’t do this the sqaures won’t line up.
