Nice job! I like the (“breadboard”?) ends and peg joinery a lot.

-- Happy woodworking!

That is a nice looking cutting board. Maple and mahogany work well together. And the mahogany dowels add a nice detail to the piece.

Well done. And thanks for the post.

Yes it was in WOOODSMITH. Virtually all my woodworking is using plans. I am , on a scale of 1 – 10, a .5 in originality. I try to choose plans that incorporate new skill for me. By virtue of my location I do not have anyone to learn from so I utilize the web and print media to be my teacher. Of course now I have Lumber Jocks which is proving very informative.

Thanks for the comments.

I’m with you. Hard to find a place to learn from here in Michigan too. I don’t think originality is as important as fit and finish and even less important than enjoying your hobby. Nice work regardless of where the idea came from!

This is a nice board. I really like the mahogany insert/breadboard, what ever it is called.

Nice job! Congratulations.

I am working on this same set of plans at the moment and have fouled up every step of the way so it is nice to see a finished product.

I am also like you in the creativity dept. so I rely on plans.

Looks great Bill. I have that same cutting board on my near-term to-do list.

here’s where we differ as woodworkers….all of my stuff is original…I don’t think that I could follow any plans because I am always seeking to improve what i have seen and don’t want to make anything that anyone else has already done . As long as you are gaining skills is all that really matters ….Great cutting board no matter who designed it originally : ) Welcome to LJ

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
