+ what everyone else has said.

I suggest that you pick another project to practice on. I see questions like yours asked a lot by folks new to woodworking. They usually want to make/build something that will most likely, end in disaster.

I am not sure what you mean by “carve” a cutting board. Can you explain further. Pictures would help.

My boards are simple but they do require gluing narrow strips together, then planing them flat on both sides. For the bigger ones, I cut finger grooves and/or juice grooves using a router and a cove bit.

Here are a few samples of my boards from the past.
Good luck.

Hello there Mike. When I say “carve” I more broadly mean using only hand tools. I’m experienced with my tools in rough carpentry, but never in this kind of fine woodworking. Like I said, I’ll have to come back to the drawing board on this.
