I made this for a customer. He wanted a live edge burly looking thick cutting board. It was a wedding gift. What do you all think. Any tips? Be brutally honest. Thanks to you all.

I like it. Simple and natural. I like the branch off the board too. Nice job.

It is beautiful. I really like the style. One caveat: the thing that gives locust (black or honey) incredible rot resistance is the silca in the wood. That same silica can be hard on tool edges, including knife edges. Tell them to include a knife sharpener with the gift ;)
