My latest cutting board that I thought had a quilt like quality about it. It's made from black walnut, cherry, and birds-eye maple. It measures about 19 1/2" x 15 1/2" x 1 1/2". I thought it would be a straight forward cutting board but turned out to be a little more difficult than anticipated. Getting the stock to the exact dimensions in each direction took some planning and was time consuming. After hours and hours of sanding with belt and random orbital sanders, my wife finally agreed to allow me to get a drum sander. She get's a new board and I get a new toy. Thanks honey!
