    The obligatory christmas cutting board post

    Made a few as gifts for the kids teachers. Never hurts to grease the wheels! I decided to see what single wood species boards would look like. Two are jatoba one is walnut and the other is jatoba, maple, cherry, and walnut. The two jatoba are heavy!

    Great work, John. They're all very nice-looking. I really like the all-jatoba version. I'll bet that sucker won't blow off the counter in a wind storm, huh?
