This coming weekend my sister and I will be flying to Houston to visit our half sister. We have not seen each other for almost 8 years but email and call to stay in touch. My half sisters birthday is next weekend while we will be visiting so I made her a cutting board as a gift. Another one of these boards is for my mom, just because I wanted to make one for her and the last one is for a co-worker to give to his wife for their anniversary.

Nice cutting boards!

Everybody loves a free cutting board. I have never had one refused yet, whether it was a long grain or end grain cutting board. The key is “free.”

Betsy,
The design came from the Woodwhisperer’s web site. There is a two part video on the site to show in great detail how Mark made his.
