Here is my first “drunken” cutting board made of walnut and maple. This was a Christmas gift to my wife. The hardest part of the project was cutting the curves with my cheapo Craftsman mini-bandsaw. That was slow going. I had to use my spindle sander to carefully remove the blade marks. Other than that, most of the time was spent waiting for the glue to dry. In the end, I decided to glue the two boards together for a more substantial cutting board. It’s so much more fun chopping veggies on a drunken cutting board. Cheers and thanks for looking.

Whoa, almost gives me a hangover looking at it. It kind of reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland themed coffee shop we took the kids to in NYC. Very cool! looks like a lot of work.

I wonder if a person was drinking heavily, if the cutting boards would look straight. I might have to grab a few beers and come back and look at the pictures. LOL. Great job !!! Mel

It is realy astonish! Great looking pattern. I bet some templates were needed to make curved cuts and joinery.

Nice Job :)

I feel your pain, I did the same with my mums box and was certainly very costly in wine waiting for the glue to dry but I think the end result is worth the hard work.

Well done

I had to look at your assembly photo to tell it was actually a flat surface. Great illusion,.. though I might hesitate to use it…Getting vertigo while slicing and dicing with sharp implements is not something I’d wish to experience!

Hmm, so that is actually flat and is just made to look warped by the shape of the pattern?
That’s just so cool. I’m not able to see that from the pictures – the only picture I find tvat might give it away is the one where you are sending it trough tha sander.
Great work!
