    My first cutting boards

    We have a wedding coming up in October for a friends daughter and since I am waiting on my brother for plaster work I took the time to make part of their gift and while I was at that I made one for the LOML also. They are 18" x 13" (13 because that is my lucky number) The boards have no fancy design or pattern I am letting the wood I chose do that. The first is Cherry with Jarrah accent strip with a little curlie maple and my wifes is Jarrah with Cherry accent strip and a little more curlie maple. Special thanks to my bud Larry for use of his wide belt sander (yep again) to be sure there was no blow out of the grain in the curlie maple

    They both look great, Tom. Now of course you do know that nobody is gonna want to cut on them, right?

    Beautiful combination of woods, Tom. I don't think I could have a heart to cut anything on those.

    Very nice cutting boards. They will be displayed I'm sure. Nice selections of woods--the curlie maple really adds a touch of class.
