Maple w/ Walnut ends Cutting board.....


Another custom cutting board is soon on its way to its new home, this time to a client in California.

This board is made out of Hard Maple in the center and Walnut strips for the ends. It measures 16 inches wide and 19 inches long and is being created to slide into a slot under a countertop.

The ends were biscuited to the center board during glueing to assist in keeping the board flat and to add to the look of the board.

I am not sure why, but the photos did not come out as nice as the board looks in person.



In the second photo, notice the finger slot I routed on the underside so it is easy for the client to pull the board out to use it. This slot was put on both ends and both sides in case they wanted to take it out of the slot and use elsewhere, or flip it over and use the other side.
