Another easy project; made of Texas Honey Mesquite with door pull handles.
Still just cursing along and doing something to keep busy until I can make my Maloof style rocker again. If anyone wants FREE text on how build this Maloof rocker just go to my web site at and order same.

They are gorgeous. I would prefer an actual wood handle though. Not a criticism, just a comment about my preferences!

That looks great! My brother and I recently built a similar cutting board ( with handles, but we had to screw the handles on from the outside. Your picture looks like the handles were mounted from screws on the inside, is this the case? If so, how did you do it? Those are some really cool cutting boards!

My customer wanted the metal handles.
I drilled the wood the size of the handle and threaded the screws almost all the way in the handle then use epoxy in the handle holes and tapped the handles in place. When the epoxy dries it will hold the screws by the head and threads thus the handle will not come lose.

Keeping busy is my only sanity. I will be 85 this month and can feel the slow down.
Better get the Maloof text and patterns ASAP
