I made 9 of these cutting boards, but that wasn’t enough. I need to make a few more.

If they look familiar it is because I saw them on the Woodsmith Shop, as I always do I changed things up a tad little and modified the size a tad and left off the meat groove. All boards with made with Hard Maple on end but the splines and yokes were made from a variety of woods including walnut, Cherry and Mahogany.

Thanks guys, when I saw them I really liked them too and thought folks would appreciate them as a gift, they are one of those items that you just wouldn’t spend that kind of money on for yourself.

Wiser1934 → For the most part the handle stock is 3/8th’s thick, I experimented a bit with thickness, when I milled the 8/4 Maple the suggestion was to cut the strips 6/8ths wide but that just seemed to darn thick so I went to 5/4 and finished to 4/4. You could use 1/2” stock for the spline and handle but 3/8ths works well too (I had a pile of 3/8ths x 16” – 18” pieces of various hard wood to use)

Nice boards Gary, I too like the book match on the shown cutting board.
I do have a concern on the exposed plastic pipe on your water heater. I have some exposed plastic pipe in my shop that was, well, compromised, but it was a cold supply. PVC is easily punctured with even blunt objects.
