Title says it all. This is my second cutting board and they are fun to make without taking up a lot of room in the shop, and also make for good milling and joinery practice.
These cutting boards have given me a chance to try out two woods that I had not used much, cherry on my first board and maple on this one.
This board was made from a stick of 8/4 maple and measured 12×18×1.6 finished.
I liked using the 8/4 maple as there was far less gluing and sanding than in my cherry cutting board that was from 4/4 stock. The walnut was leftover from a coffee table project several years back, and was glad to find use finally for those table leg scraps that were too pretty to discard.
Thanks for looking.

Cutting boards are great because they are super simple and you get something cool looking and useful in a very short time.
