I had a piece of Maple laminated countertop sitting around and thought I would make a new cutting board for Thanksgiving. I inlaid a walnut letter H in the center and made sure there was a large dripping catch sloped to the end reservoir. One side is for meats, the other side is for bread and I routed out 2 handles to make it easier to pick up and flip over to the side you want. I also had a carving set that I had purchased a while ago and decided to make them match the cutting board with maple and walnut handles. The set was from Rockler, brand name SARGE and I would NOT recommend them. The handles had to be sanded down so far to match the bolster that they feel super skinny. I ended up having to grind a lot of metal off just to make everything fit correctly. Applied 4 coats of food-grade butcher block mineral oil and it’s ready for some turkey carving!
