Why would anybody make a cutting board that is too pretty to cut on? Because, we can!! Christmas is a time to be creative. Working on a few end grained boards that I’ll post in a couple of days.

Some snazzy looking face grain boards there. I like that pair on the last picture.

WOW what a gorgeous bunch!

I make my cutting boards and shop mallets—just a little on the ugly side—that way they do get actually used!

Well my mallets are REALLY UGLY—so I do NOT CARE if I ruin them. I will just make more ugly ones to replace them.

I like to refer to it as ‘functional art’.

And make sure you tell folks that cutting boards have two sides. The ‘show off’ side and the ‘use it for what it was made for’ side.

Great collection – BTW!

I really like the first board. What are the overall dimensions? Also, what wood species?
