Hey lumberjock family,

I don’t make a lot of cutting boards these days but occasionally I do. This is the 30th piece in this series which will end in the next few months… I’d love to get some feedback as to what my fellow woodworkers think… likes/dislikes? Improvements? Any insights at all….

Thank you all,

Enjoy the evening,

That is a beautiful board! I like juice grooves and handles but I don’t know if I’d want to cut into that pattern.

The argyle pattern is wonderful! Can you provide some instruction on the wood choices, glue up and cutting of the argyle pattern? I’d like to make one too.

Really nice looking cutting board. It would be a shame to cut on it and damage the surface. Should be hung on the wall as art or used in a way that won’t damage it.

Love it, great for a show piece but a sin to cut on, lol.

love the pattern. The argyle pops with the finish, the back ground wood lost some of its character with the finish. I’m not sure how you could change that. I too am interested in the how to glue up.
