    Couple Cutting Boards

    A friend asked me to make his fiance a big cutting board for Xmas. She wanted big, made from dark and interesting wood and a handle he said. This is what I came up with out of cherry and walnut. Its 27" tall and 18" wide...she said BIG right? I had some scraps laying around and since I had the clamps and glue out already, I glued up a few smaller boards as well. 2 cherry and walnut and one hard maple and walnut. Delivering the big one today at lunch and the others will be put in the stack of the ones for sale or gifting at a later time.

    Looks nice. Looks big enough for her to use as a pizza peel if she wants too.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Someone is going to have a very merry Christmas. Good looking boards Jeff. The 'natural' edge makes them really unique.

    Nice job! Love the large one, also the natural edges are nice.

    Well, delivery got delayed until tomorrow. My friend had to put out some fires at work so we couldn't meet for lunch.

    Thanks again for the kind words everyone...
