Default It's not scroll work....but.....

My next door neighbor (a professional Chef) asked me to build him a cutting board. A cutting board didn't sound too tough so I said, sure. He wanted it made from Maple & Walnut. Okay.......size 18 x24 inches x 2" thick. Whew! Thats a big honking board. I did my research and I had many doubts weather I could pull this off and have a sale able finished product. Half way through I was even more unsure. I kept pluggin away and this was the final product. I added the cherry and he walked away a very happy camper. Whew!!!!

Wow that looks fantastic!

The cherry was a nice transitional wood between the walnut and maple.

He should be a happy camper. I wouldn't be surprised if you dont get a couple more orders. His chef friends will be pea green with envy over that!

It's beautiful...did you just glue the pieces together or did you use biscuits for added strength...???
I made a board (21"x24") mainly for rolling out cookie dough not really a cutting board...I used 3/4" red oak and finished with a Butcher Block oil with wax...it really brought out the color in the wood...

That looks great! I also like the cherry as a transition color.
What glue did you use? And finish?

Thank you all for your generous comments. Sam I did laminate (Glue) all the pieces together . After sanding I used Howards cutting board oil to finish it. Rolf I used Titebond Liquid Hide Wood Glue. I put it together and though it needed something more, so I removed 2 sticks of maple and added the cherry wood for that transition. Thanks again.

Very good. Nice to have a happy camper for a customer. He will show it off and that should lead into more being wanted.

It looks & sounds like your neighbor really know's you & your talent. You really did a great job finishing up a fine cutting board. He should be happy & maybe even pass the word on to other chef's. Gold Star to you !!
