This an example of cutting boards I made for friends and family for Christmas. I made these using part of an Ikea butcher block countertop that had been wrecked when it was installed. The inlay is walnut. I dadoed the kerfs with my table saw and routed the finger holds on the ends. I treated them with mineral oil. Not too complicated, but came out pretty nice.
