Every Christmas I make cutting boards for friends and family and with lots of free time this year I actually got them done early. The zig zig 3D I made from a plan from MTM Woodworking. It’s made with Purpleheart, Sapele, and Bigleaf Maple. The other 2 were made with no real plan in mind. I had walnut, cherry, and maple leftovers and just started planing and gluing and cutting and sanding and somehow came up with these 2 designs. Hopefully, no one asks me to make them another one of these 2 because I have no idea really what I did. Kinda like them better than the planned one. Finished with Howard Butcher Bloc Finish.

Nice! The gift recipients aren’t going to want to use them. Just look at them.
