Here are a couple of cutting boards I made for Christmas presents. The first one is 12 x 14 and made from cherry, maple, and purple heart. It's for my son's teacher. It never hurts to butter them up.
The second I "borrowed" from Vaughn McMillan's website. He has an excellent tutorial. Thanks Vaughn. It's maple, walnut, and purple heart. It's aprox. 10 x 18. If I make another I will change the purple heart. It doesn't show up very well.
I teach 8th grade science and this one is probably destined for one of the special ed. teachers.
