Please ignore my friend with the creepy stare. I made this cutting board for he and his wife as a housewarming gift. I forgot to take the picture until I gave it to them and had to do it with my phone.

The board is made from hard maple and purpleheart (basic Wood Whisperer design). My shopsmith had a hard time getting through the 8/4 stock which made for a LOT of sanding after glue up. I probably won’t be doing another one of these until I get a proper tablesaw. It was a fun project all the same. Plus, they loved it!

I am impressed. Especially since you made it with a shopsmith tablesaw.
Thanks for the post.

Nice board, but I love the idea of giving a chunk of wood for a house warming gift
