    sold two more cutting boards.

    I asked a question about pricing of cutting boards a few weeks ago because I had someone approach me about making one. Well since then I have sold two more. Here are a couple of pics of them. The flat grained one is maple, purple heart and walnut. The end grained one is walnut and ambrosia maple.

    Both are beautiful.

    May I ask, how much they were sold for?

    Very nice, John. As word gets out, you're likely to get more and more requests for those.

    I sold them for 40.00 each. Probably not enough for the end grain, but I'm happy with it.

    congrats on the sale! I delivered one of the smaller boards I made recently to my best man, and I turned him down when he asked what he owed me. I know that he's been facing some business difficulties lately, so I didn't have the heart to accept cash from him. I did say, however that if anyone else wanted one similar or larger that I would be happy to sell the Next guy one.

    It's funny how I sold the three that I have. At work around Christmas we swap gifts. They usually are gag gifts, nothing over 10.00 bucks that sort of thing. This year I didn't want to look for anything so I dove into the scrap pile and threw together a board. It went over very well and I started getting requests. I know I won't get rich from these boards, but the funds will be added to the tool budget.

    Nice boards! 40 bucks is way more than a fare price
    Aloha,

    Those are VERY Impressive, John. Beautiful combination of spectacular woods. I've seen some at the annual Fall Art & Crafts Festival over in Midland (before this economy thing), that were MUCH more plain than yours go for $65 to $80.
