New take on the classic end grain cutting board..whatcha think?

Board is made of Zebrawood, Purple Heart, yellow heart, hard maple, cherry, wenge, black walnut, and padauk..Handle is live edge black walnut.

The hidden magnets are at the base of the handle near the grip. They are great for storing smaller chopping knives…Need to set something down or use 2 hands? Just slap your knife against the magnets.

Thanks for checking it out…
peace, love, potato chips

I wonder if the hidden magnets hold the handle on?

Hey I appreciate the kind words…the magnets are along the handle so when you need 2 hands in the kitchen, you can just lay your knife on the magnet instead of laying your knife down somewhere else…this was the first time I’ve ever tried it…can’t take credit for the idea but it honestly works really well and it’s pretty cool. I saw a variation of the magnets in the handle at a convention year or so ago…this board is already sold or I would post a picture … ✌

Welcome to Lumberjocks WildWoodsAsheville! Really like your cutting block…though I’d never actually use it. Way too nice for it’s destined purpose! I’d just get something from Walmart and keep yours as kitchen artwork….

Hah! ...and yet another Asheville artisan. They grow ‘em thick out there on the west end of NC. Good Luck to you and future endeavors!

Oh yeah…Peace, love and Kettle Chips. Way crunchier and more satisfying. ; )

Thanks so much, happy to be hear. WooHoo for finally signing up… I have been cruising (lurking) L.J. for quite a while now and am glad I can finally share some stuff and learn from this cool community.

I have noticed how many woodworkers are in western NC and I agree, its quite a lot. haha. Must be the French Broad River water or something. Great community to be apart of none the less.

Kettle Chips for the win, no doubt.

Good idea – cool combo of those two types of boards.
