I wanted to try my hand at a cutting board last weekend, so I figured that I would give it a go and see how it comes out. The species of are maple, walnut and cherry.

The first thing I did is square up the boards on the jointer and table saw. After that I ordered the boards in the pattern that I thought would be the best... On to glue!

 

I couldn't pass up the chance to get a video of oiling up the board. I had one friends say that it was "straight up sexy" so I had to add the music!

My mom in Florida got some nice knives for Christmas, so I decided rather than using the nice knives on a plastic cutting board, I would make her one! She got the cutting board in the mail today! Not only that she got the first cutting board that I have ever made! Happy birthday MOM!!!
