Cutting board i made back when i first got in to woodworking, was my first project after my workbench. The plans came from a woodsmith magazine, cant remember which one but if you google “woodsmith classy cutting board” it should come up. I messed up the juice groove, unfortunately the tape didn’t hold while i was routing, so i ended up flipping it over and made the groove on the underside. I was so disappointed too! cause the walnut dowl accents were on the bad side.

Ooh…I love it, good job. People get so fancy with making cutting boards these days, but something like this is more my style. Classy is a good description for it.

Thanks for sharing.

I like this style cutting board over the end grain checker board look. The last board i attempted had curvy inlays, but it just wasnt coming out well. I dont have parallel clamps and feel like it would be of help to have some before trying again. Thanks for the comment.

Nice work! I like this style too. I built the full set of three a few years ago for a gift. The plans are available on the Woodsmith Shop site if anyone else wants to try them.
