The owner of a tool shop that I’ve worked with for a while volunteered to make my wedding favors for me for free (will post those later). Knowing that they would put in design time and several hours on the laser CNC, there was true value in what they offered.

To say Thanks, I made the owner and the design engineer some massive cutting boards. These were fun. I had time to cut one in half on the band saw and insert a 3-layer sandwich of one 16th inch thick ash and purple heart strips. I wanted to do some other fancy stuff, but ran short on time.

Materials: Walnut, cherry, ash, maple, purple heart

Dimensions:

12.5”x19”x2.25”

12.5”x17”x2”

Very nice boards, great combinations of woods. I really like the strips in the one board.

Great looking cutting boards, nice choice of woods and to me not ever having made one looks to be a fairly complicated design or at the very least very time consuming in the making….thanks for sharing.

Beautiful boards! For some reason the idea of Morse code popped into my head. I was thinking that a great way to personalize this kind of gift board would be to spell out a message in code. I went to the Internet to see if there is some kind of translator, and sure enough, there is.

Not only does it translate anything to dots and dashes, it provides an audio play back. Far out!
I typed in Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and it gave me
