I’ve always wanted to try my hand at building a sweet cutting board, so when reader 1200tec posted up a few examples of his latest project I felt a little behind. I’ll admit to altering my plan after seeing his excellent and stylish execution.
1200tec chose walnut, purple heart, and what looks like maple to create a sweet checkered block. The project started off as an exercise in gluing and clamping, but later he got to add sanding and oiling to the list. He used the small amount of stock to great effect, and from what we can tell, the two days he worked on the board was time well-spent.
You’d pay a small fortune for a cutting block like this if you bought it in a store, so hats off to 1200tec for his hands-on approach.
